Joyce Ann Lay Gipson

October 14, 1943 — December 24, 2022

Louisville

Gipson, Joyce Ann, age 79 of Oldham County, returned to the arms of our Lord and Savior Saturday, December 24, 2022. She was born October 14, 1943, to the late Seibert and Virginia Lay in Richmond, Virginia and has been a resident of Oldham County for 43 years.

Joyce was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Lawrence L. Gipson; granddaughter, Sydney Elaina Horsley; and brother, Norman Leon Lay.

Joyce is survived by two daughters, Melanie Gipson Phillips, Stephanie Gipson Horsley (Floyd); six grandchildren, Jacob Phillips (Madeline), Catherine Richardson, Joshua Phillips (Courtney), Abigail Phillips (Aaron), Owen and Scarlett Horsley; eight great grandchildren; two sisters, Wanda Burkhardt (John) and Debra Whiting; one brother, Darrell Lay (Kellye); two sister-in-laws, Reba Lay and Temple Rogers; and many cousins, nieces, and nephews.

Joyce was a longtime member of Crestwood Baptist Church and spent her life serving the Lord. She enjoyed cooking, reading, shopping, and was happiest spending time with family and friends. Her laugh was infectious and would light up a room. Joyce will be remembered most for her constant unwavering love, loyalty, graciousness, hospitality, and selflessness.
