Joy Snipes

March 1, 1938 — May 1, 2019

Joy Gray Snipes was born on March 1, 1938 and went home to be with the Lord on May 1, 2019.

As her name implies, Joy brought love and laughter to everyone she encountered.  Joy lived a life of service to her family, her church, and her community. She was a faithful member of Harvest Fellowship where she led the senior adult ministry for over a decade. She also served faithfully with the hospitality team, never missed an outreach, and always made sure the church plants were watered! Joy will be missed by the hundreds of people she touched over the years.

Joy is preceded in death by her parents, Lee and Hazel Loudermilk; her brother Glen; her sister Marie; and her husband Albert “Buck”.
She is survived by her children, Brenda Ray, Kent Gray and his wife Shirley Gray; her grandchildren, Jason, Matthew, Natasha, and Breanna; her great grandchildren, Joshuah, Kaleigh, Ryan; and her brothers, and sisters, Wanda, Ronnie, Linda, and Darrell.
