Joyce Modesta Barefield

October 27, 1945 ~ August 31, 2020 (age 74)


Joyce Barefield passed away on August 31, 2020. She was proceeded in death by her parents, Gerald Lewis and Geraldine Lewis, her brother Geral, and her son-in-law, Andrew McCaffrey. She is survived by her daughter Karen and a host of family and friends from her travels throughout life. Born in Los Angeles in 1945, she always called New Orleans home. Joyce was a graduate of McDonogh 35, an Air Force veteran, a long time computer programmer and a quiet and strong presence of love wherever she went. She was devoted to Karen, her family and friends and the dogs- Chrissie, Sugar, Jade and Peppi- lucky enough to live with her. Several friends and family played a special part in her life in her later years, including her cousin Erroll Lewis, friends Marcie Courtney and her daughter April, Barbara Carter and Father James Morrison and Perry Southerland. A Celebration of her Life will be held at St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church on a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to St. Andrew’s or to Zeus’ Place in her name.
