June 15, 1945 ~ April 27, 2018
Joy Audrene (Sherer) Gray of Lawrenceville, passed away Friday, April 27, 2018, at the age of 72. Born in New Castle, Pennsylvania, Joy moved to Georgia in 1983. Soon after relocating, Joy began work as an office manager in real estate, diligently carving out a new life for herself and her two children, Terri and Cory. After years of dedicated service, she would bring her career as office manger to a close, retiring from Dorsey Alston Realtors in 2014. Although her demeanor was quiet and soft-spoken, she could easily disarm with a funny quip - made even more humorous with one of her animated looks. Known for her tremendous character and effortless grace, Joy was - in the truest sense - a woman with impeccable class. Her absence will leave an indelible mark on all who knew and loved her. Joy was preceded in death by her mother, Clara Ellen (Terry) DeVinney; father, Carl Sherer; beloved mother-in-law, Dorothy Gray and Cousin Carol Buzzelli. She is survived by her daughter, Terri (Gray) Miller; son, Cory (Gray) Spencer and son-in-law, Dexter Spencer, grandchildren, Griffin Miller, Carly Miller, Justin Gray; sister, Candace "Candy" Sherer; brother and sister-in-law, Wally and Cindy Sherer; mother-in-law Suzanne Sherer; nieces, Laura Borden, Caroline Reed, Melinda Rogers; as well as special friends, Nancy Orrico and June Wardman. A Memorial Service for Joy will be held on June 24th, 2018 / 2:00 pm at Hope Memory Care Center activities room, 1200 Winder Highway, Dacula, GA 30019.
