Joyce Marie Robertson
March 06, 1932 - September 01, 2017
Joyce Marie Robertson, 85, passed away September 1, 2017 after living a happy, fulfilling and Christ-filled life. She courageously fought thru many medical issues with great determination, constantly thanking her Jesus for her life and waiting with great anticipation for her journey to Heaven. She was born to Albert Earl Chambers and Garlie Mae Ingles Chambers on March 6, 1932 in Tulsa Oklahoma.
After graduation from Daniel Webster High School, she was employed at various secretarial jobs and moved to Dallas with British-American Oil Co. where she met and flirted with Fred. They married on June 18, 1955 and in the fall of that same year moved back to Tulsa to begin their family. Joyce attended night business courses and worked secretarial positions including the Phillips Corporation Property Management Co. for the famous Philtower Bldg in downtown Tulsa and the Boy Scouts of America. She and Fred relocated to Houston in 1974, where she was very involved with church activities, friends and employed by Fluor Engineering until she retired. Joyce and Fred enjoyed their time together and sharing their talents in their crafts. They started a ceramic/crafts “Hobby” business and would travel to local craft fairs to sell their creations. Joyce’s sewing and quilting skills were expert, and she crocheted and quilted many beautiful blankets for family and friends.
