Dansville- Joyce M. Button age 82, passed away early Sunday morning December 15, 2019, at the Livingston County CNR in Mt. Morris after a short illness brought on by years of living with COPD.

She was born in Ceres, NY on February 6, 1937, a daughter of the late Cornelius and Irene (Newton) Loucks. On August 2, 1958, she was married to Leslie Button, Jr. who predeceased her on May 10, 2002. She was also predeceased by two sisters, Sandra Parker and Linda Ginter.

Joyce was full of life. During her early years she enjoyed bowling, gardening, playing cards, camping and fishing. She was proud of her five strong and independent daughters.
