Joyce was born on March 10, 1933 in Iola, TX to Joseph Abner and Myrtle Anna (Worsham) Gorbet. Being an only child, she was devoted to her parents and lived her entire life on the "Gorbet Place" in Iola, TX. Soon after graduating from Iola High School, she went to work at Community State Bank where she worked her entire life serving the residents of her community. She retired from the bank as its vice-president, and her retirement lasted two days, as she immediately went back to work at the bank on a part-time basis.

Joyce was preceded in death by her parents; her infant brother; and her husband, Roland Yeager. She is survived by her cousins, her brother-in-law, and her sisters-in-law.

The family wishes to thank Traditions Hospice and Park Place Assisted Living for the loving care they provided Joyce.

Serving as pallbearers are: Kenny Watson, Berry Willis, Darrell Reed, William Nevill, Kent Dale, and Matt Dale.
