Shirley “Joyce” Ann Geyer

Shirley “Joyce” Ann Geyer, 78, was born in Little Rock, Arkansas, July 1, 1945, to Jeff and Renia Basham.

Joyce spent her days being a homemaker, loving mother, and the best grandma a kid could ever ask for. On Friday September 15, 2023, heaven gained an angel, and the world lost one of the most beautiful, caring, and loving individuals you will ever know. She was smart, funny, loved fishing, and most importantly, she loved her family.

There are so many great memories running through our heads that it is hard to pick just one that stands out. Nothing was better than going over to grandma’s house and hanging out. Family, friends, anyone. It was truly the place to be. She was always available to talk and loved having her family around just as much as we loved being around her. She was one of a kind to say the least and without a doubt irreplaceable.

Even though our hearts are heavy, we know that she is in a better place with family and friends that she loves, watching over the family and friends that she left behind. We will cherish the memories that we have. We will talk about them, laugh about them, and cry about them. In the end, we will be happy and our hearts will be full knowing how truly blessed we were to have someone as great as her be a part of our life.

She will be missed, never forgotten, and forever in our hearts.

Joyce was preceded in death by her parents, Jeff and Renia Basham; brothers, James, Tommy, Ralph, and Jackie Basham; sisters, Jessie Morgan, Janette Freeman, Barbara Avery, and Wanda Todd; sons, Jackie and Tommy Wedge.

Surviving her passing are her son, Curtis (Angela) Wedge of Warrensburg, MO; daughters, Doris Robertson of Jacksonville, AR, Shirley Wiseman of Urich, MO, Tina Wedge of Atchison, KS, and Tammie Coots-Wedge of Warrensburg, MO; brother, Jeff Basham of Texarkana, TX, and Homer (Jackie) Basham; sisters, Glenda Nix of AR, and Clara Ferguson of OK; and more grandchildren than you could shake a stick at.
