Laddonia, MO

Joy Brummitt danced into the arms of Jesus on November 25, 2022 at the age of 68 years. Though she will be sorely missed, we know she is celebrating with her mom, dad, sister Gay Lee, and niece Abigail JoAnne among others. Joy was born in Lexington, Mo. , on June 19, 1954 to James Thomas (J. T. ) Brummitt and JoAnne (Street) Brummitt. The Santa Fe railroad family ended up in LaPlata, Mo. where Joy lived as "one of those little Brummitt girls. " It was LaPlata where she grew up, graduated high school and formed many life-long friends. Joy loved children and spent most her working years in daycares and church nurseries. Because Joy was so petite and because she would always listen, children were drawn to "Joy-Joy" or "Miss Joy. " Even when she retired, she was a "volunteer grandmother" at the Williams Family Center, Mexico, Mo. Joy's pride and joy were her 42 nieces, nephews, great nieces and great nephews. Joy was an active member of the Daughters of the American Revolution where she especially enjoyed the annual Cameo Tea Party so she could dress up and wear a fancy hat. Joy is survived by two sisters, Merrilee Wells, of Parsons, Kansas and Glee Hanson, of Laddonia; brother-in-law Monte Hanson who cared for Joy like one of his own, and all those nieces, nephews, great nieces and great nephews. Joy's Celebration of Life will be held at Thursday, Dec. 1 at 11 a. m. and will be held at the Mexico Church of the Nazarene where she had been an active member also since moving to Farber in 2011.
