Joyce Atkinson Castlen

Joyce Atkinson Castlen, age 90, died on Sunday March 26, 2017 at the Haven Hospice Suwannee Valley Care Center in Lake City, Florida. She was born on June 8, 1926 in Waldo, Florida to Carroll Leon Atkinson and Minnie Hodges Atkinson. Joyce will be remembered fondly by many in Brooker, Florida where she served as town clerk for a number of years and raised her four boys. She was a dedicated mother who sacrificed a lot over the years to take care of her family and was dearly loved by all of them.
Joyce was preceded in death by her sister, Ilean Atkinson Lewis and grandson Lucas Castlen. She is survived by sons Mike Castlen (Debbie) of Long Beach, CA; Patrick Castlen (Irene) of Lake Butler, FL; Tony Castlen (Valerie) of Dayton, TN; and Charles Castlen (Norma) of High Springs, FL; grandchildren Josh Castlen, Chris Childree, Patricia Castlen, Katrina Crawford, Edward Castlen, Angela Carney, Bill Castlen, Amy Smith, Steve Castlen, Misty Barnett and Jeremy Castlen, plus numerous great- and great-great grandchildren, steps, and many others who called her "Granny". She loved them all very much.
Tony Castlen and Mike Castlen will be officiating funeral services for Joyce.
Over the years Joyce enjoyed receiving plants and bouquets, as she always said not to send flowers to her funeral, instead, give them to her while she was still around to appreciate them! In keeping with her wishes, donation memorials may be made in Joyce's name to Haven Hospice.
