Joan M. Kinslow Doy, 90, of The Villages, Florida, passed away Saturday, July 27, 2019, after a valiant battle with cancer. Joan was born and raised in Syracuse, New York, to the late Bernard Kinslow and Lydia A. Dygert Kinslow. She was also preceded in death by three sisters, Lydia, Nancy and MaryLou; and her loving husband, Hugh “Jack” Doy, to whom she was married for 63 years before his passing in 2015.
She is survived by her only child, David (Chris) of The Villages, Florida; two grandsons, Jeff (Michelle) of Virginia Beach and David (Barbara) of New Market, Maryland; and six great-grandchildren, Tyler, Ryan, Grace, Leah, David and Anna. She is also survived by her brother, Bernard Kinslow, of The Villages, Florida, and sister Joyce Voorhees, of Seminole Florida. Joan moved from Virginia Beach to The Villages in 2016 to be near her son and daughter-in-law.
Joan was a kind and gentle soul who loved her family and friends. She had a beautiful voice and loved singing in her church choir, often performing solos during special religious services. She especially enjoyed seeing her grandsons and great-grandchildren, and had the opportunity of watching her two oldest great grandchildren, Tyler and Ryan, living only a few minutes from them, grow up.
Joan will be missed by all who knew her. I’m sure that she is looking down on all of us right now with a smile on her face, and if you listen closely you can hear her singing in the heavenly choir.
We love you and miss you.
Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m., Monday, Aug. 12, at Woodlawn Funeral Home and Memorial Gardens, 6329 E. Virginia Beach Blvd, Norfolk. She will be laid to rest beside her husband, Jack.
