Obituary for Alice Joy Roy

Alice Joy (Roberts) Roy, 88, passed away on Tuesday, July 30, 2019. Born on October 17, 1930 in Hoopeston, IL, she was the wife of the late Donald Roy and daughter of the late Iva (Metz) Roberts Hayes and Chester Roberts. Joy graduated from East Lynn high school as valedictorian of her class and went on to Illinois Normal College, majoring in Home Economics. Many knew her as a Home Economics teacher at East Lynn High School.

After living and working in the Hoopeston/East Lynn, Illinois area for most of their married lives, Joy and Don retired to Eddyville, Illinois in 1991. They enjoyed years of horseback riding on the trails of the Shawnee National Forest. A member of the Hilltopper’s Chapter of the Homemakers Association, Eastern Star and Red Hats, Joy was an active member of the Eddyville community. She liked to go to the Golden Circle Lunch that was served to seniors in Eddyville every Tuesday. Joy loved spending time with several local ladies in the Eddyville area, sharing many meals out and lots of storytelling. She was an active member of the Eddyville United Methodist Church, serving as treasurer and pastor parish committee member for many years.

She was the loving mother of two daughters, Ellen Aly (Frank) of Eddyville, Illinois, and Alesa Rehmann (Guy) of Key Largo, Florida, and grandmother to her adoring granddaughters, Lindsay Rehmann of Portland, Oregon, and Erin Rehmann of Tampa, Florida. Her adventurous spirit led her to be instrumental in teaching her daughters, granddaughters, relatives and friends skills such as cooking, knitting, weaving and even line dancing. Joy loved to help others more than anything.

Services will be held Monday, August 5, 2019, at the Aly Funeral Home in Eddyville, Illinois. Visitation will be from 10:00am to 12:00pm with the funeral service at 12:00pm. Dinner will be served immediately following the service at the Masonic Lodge in Eddyville. Graveside services will be at the East Lynn, Cemetery on Tuesday, August 6 at 1:00pm.
