Joyce Garcia

December 19, 1952 ~ September 15, 2022 (age 69)


Joyce Garcia, 69, passed away September 15, 2022 in Johnson City, New York after a courageous battle with cancer. She was born to Nelson and Laverne Snow on December 19, 1952 in Richmond, California. She grew up in California and enjoyed spending summers in Snyder, Oklahoma with her grandparents. After graduating from DeAnza High School in 1971, she spent the majority of her career with State Farm Insurance, performing various roles within the company. After retiring, she relocated from California to New York to be closer to her daughter and best friend, Jennifer.

Always a helper and giver, Joyce found fulfillment in doing things for the people in her life, whether it be running errands for others, driving people places, or baking cookies for her daughter, just because. Her kindness and compassion for others was inspiring to those who knew her. Joyce enjoyed spending time at a local campground in the summer where she fed the birds, fished, and soaked up the sunshine. She also loved country music, playing bingo, and watching true crime documentaries. In addition to her daughter, she is survived by her brother, Don (Daphne) Snow; sister, Linda (Danny) Wagner, and companion, Richard Progovitz. She was predeceased by her parents.
