Services announced for Representative Spilliotis

29 Nov

Joyce Spilliotis during her days as a Peabody City Councilor

Services for State Rep. Joyce Spilliotis, who passed away early this morning, will be held on Sunday and Monday.

Joyce’s husband, Dick Jarvis, told Eye on Peabody that visiting hours will be on Sunday, Dec. 2, 2-to-6 p.m., at the O’Donnell Funeral Home, 46 Washington Square, Salem.  Prayer services will take place at Saint Thomas the Apostle Church, 1 Margin Street, Peabody on Monday at 10 a.m.

We’ll publish more details as they become available, but Dick would like to thank everyone for their outpouring of sympathy and respect for Joyce. He says it has been a very difficult time for he and his family, but it’s “wonderful” to know how much Joyce’s public service meant to the citizens of Peabody.

We then smiled over the thought  of Joyce right now asking God when nomination papers will be available for her to run for a spot on Heaven’s City Council.

      You’re very welcome. Sue. It’s a sad day for Peabody, but then it brings a smile to your face when you think about all the great things Joyce did for our city. And it makes you smile some more when you think about her compassion, wit, and original style.

    […] The “Peoples’ Joyce” will be greatly missed not only as an outstanding public servant, but also as a terrific wife, mother, and friend.  Information on her services can be found here. […]
