Joyce Despain Bradley

January 26, 1946 — March 17, 2021

Joyce Despain Bradley, age 75, of Snowflake, passed away after a brief illness on March 17, 2021 in Murray, Utah. She was born January 26, 1946 to Richard and Mae Despain, in Snowflake, AZ.

Joyce spent her youth in Snowflake, graduating from Snowflake High School. She then attended Cosmetology School in Safford, AZ and made many friends through the years doing hair. After raising her family, Joyce earned her teaching degree from Northland Pioneer College and Northern Arizona University. She found her true calling as a teacher and loved working with the children in the Snowflake-Taylor and Show Low School Districts.

Joyce enjoyed gardening, reading, genealogy, and coaching her girls’ sports teams. What she lacked in athletic ability she made up with enthusiasm! Even though she worked full-time Joyce never missed a game or performance! Through the blessing of technology, she was even able to attend her out of state grandchildren’s games and performances- she was their loudest cheerleader!

Joyce is survived by her children Kim, Cassie and Todd (son-in-law) and bonus children Becky, Nate and Holly; grandchildren Sophie, Eli, and Peyton and bonus grandkids Jaden, Olivia, and Jace; plus, numerous friends and honorary children and grandkids she adopted throughout her years of coaching and teaching!

Funeral services will be on Friday, March 26, at 11:00 AM at the Snowflake Main Street Chapel with burial in the Snowflake Cemetery immediately following the service. There will be a viewing that morning from 10:00-11:00 AM.

The family is very grateful for the prayers and messages of love and support from Joyce’s many friends.
