Joyce Rae AuBuchon, 76, passed into the loving arms of her Lord on Friday October 21, 2011 joining her beloved husband Harvey who passed away just four months ago. She is now at peace after a long, difficult struggle with pancreatic cancer. Joyce was born on October 22, 1934 in Corpus Christi Texas where she attended WB Ray High School and later received her degree in Liberals Arts from Del Mar College in 1958. For the next 13 years she was a Navy wife following her husband of 54 years from Texas to Georgia, Florida, Colorado and California. After her husband left the Navy to become an airline pilot they settled in Palo Alto California. While raising her family she pursued her dream of obtaining a degree in Library Science at San Jose City College.
Joyce was a lifetime member of the Santa Clara County Genealogical Society, where she dedicated her time to helping others trace their family lines. She left a beautiful gift for her children and grandchildren by tracing their family tree back to the 1600's on their father's side and the 1700's on her side of the family. We will always cherish what she accomplished. Joyce was a very active member of Menlo Park Presbyterian Church, teaching bible and fellowship classes before moving to Ventura to be closer to her family and devoting herself fulltime to caring for her husband.
Joyce is preceded in death by her husband Harvey AuBuchon, her parents Neva (Ross) Humphries and Clarence Humphries. She is survived by her children Mark AuBuchon of Ventura and Annette AuBuchon Boyd (Steve) of Ventura, her grandchildren Steven and Lindsay Boyd of Ventura, her twin sister Joy Humphries of Corpus Christi Texas, brother Ross (Jane) Humphries of Victoria Texas, brother in law Kendall (Laurie) of Mt. Juliet, Tennessee. Along with numerous cousins, nieces and nephews.
A memorial service will be held for Joyce at Ivy Lawn Memorial Park on November 12, 2011 at 1:00 p.m.
The Family would like to thank Dr. McIntrye, Dr. Fogel, Dr. Woodling and their staff, Community Memorial Hospital, Livingston Hospice, Westwood home care, for supporting her during her struggle and making it possible for her to pass at home where she wanted to be with her family by her side.
