Joy was born on Jan. 24th, 1945 in Seminole, TX to Edgar Roy Patton and Lucille Haywood Patton. She married William Edmond (Bill) Moore in 1966. Joy worked for Fort Walton Beach Medical Center for 37 years, first working her way up to Materials Manager at the Destin Hospital branch and then as a Unit Secretary in Fort Walton Beach. Miss Joy cared deeply for "her nurses" and remained lifelong friends with them and many of the doctors she worked with.
Joy is survived by her daughter Tianna (Bobby) Beck of Big Spring, TX, and by her son Tylan (Nicki) Moore of Fort Walton Beach, FL. She is survived by her grandchildren Josh (Amanda) Beck, Jeremy Beck, Carson Sayers, and Ella Sayers. She is survived by her great-grandchildren Bree Beck, Brayden Gray, and Kane Mengel. She shared a special bond with Tylan's Goddaughters Kiana and Briana Mitchell. She also leaves behind many cherished family members and friends.
She was preceded in death by her brother Duane (Jill) Patton of Durango, Co.
Joy, a converted Floridian, always remained a feisty West Texas gal with a hard shell exterior but on the interior was a heart of gold! She was Baptist by faith. In lieu of flowers, the family requests charitable donations be made, in her honor, to Central Baptist Church, 710 James Lee Road, Fort Walton Beach, FL 32547.
