After retiring, she worked in several shops in Lahaska, PA before purchasing her own business, Glass Masters of The Village, in Peddler's Village, which she owned for fifteen years. Joyce volunteered for the Red Cross Blood Mobile for many years. She was an avid animal lover and was known to take in many stray animals. Joyce loved to travel, especially to Disney World and Block Island. She and her husband Gene took bus tours often. Joyce was very social and enjoyed going out with her friends, especially to the Tea Room in Flemington, NJ.

Daughter of the late James and Carrie (Kitchen) Cooper, Joyce is survived by her son Gene Singley, Jr. and his wife Barbara of Wysox, PA, three daughters, Janet Oswald and her husband Neil of Danielsville, PA, Donna Bivighouse and her husband Scott of Ottsville, PA, and Gaye Singley and her partner Joe Birch of Tinicum Township, PA, her brother Charles Cooper of Holland Township, NJ, her sister Barbara Wilkins of Saxton, PA, her five grandchildren Jesse, Kirsten, Kaitlin, Shauna, and Aaron, her three great-grandchildren Nathan, Caleb, and Cole, and her beloved cat Smokey. Joyce is predeceased by her beloved husband Eugene W. Singley, Sr. in 2010, as well as her brothers Jack Cooper and James Cooper, and sisters Sally Miller and Judy Haare.

A Celebration of Joyce's Life will be announced at a later date. Arrangements are under the care of the Johnson-Walton Funeral Home, 24 Church Road, Milford, NJ.

Joyce was a regular at my tea room and she touched my heart. We shared a love of cats and we always had long hugs. I will miss her smile. May she Rest In Peace.

This is Revena Rockar. I worked for Joyce from 2010-2014. She was a jewel. She was kinda like a Mom to me. I would always make fudge and Kentucky bourbon balls at Christmas for her, she loved them. I took the picture of her that you posted. Good memories. Peddlers Village will miss her terribly.

From: Hans Ascher
Joyce, So missed your absence at the Village. And deeply regret not having maintained our connection in recent years. Still and will continue to hold dear our conversations and cherish the times shared with you at Glass Masters. You were always there for me during the struggles, the joys, the disappointments and the triumphs. You kindled and inspired a passion that remains a significant influence on my life and interests. Thank you for all of the pleasant times and experiences shared. For those I'm blessed and will always reflect upon fondly.

It was with great sadness to hear of "Joyce's" passing. Joyce always had a smile on her face, enjoyed gathering groups of friends for trips and a meal out. She will be missed.
