Joyce Eldred, age 59 of Magnolia Texas, joined our Lord in Heaven on Wednesday March 21, 2018 at 8:57pm in Houston Texas, after a long struggle with Cancer and a brain tumor. Joyce was born in Tampa, Florida to Rex Roy and Maycle Michal on August 14, 1958 and is the youngest of 4 children. Joyce is preceded in death by her parents; Rex & Maycle Michal, sister: Rita Ruth Michal, and her husband Raymond Scott Eldred.
Joyce is survived by her three children, Rita Renee Taylor and her spouse Robert Brandon Taylor of Baytown, TX, William David Gillard, II, and Andrew Roy Gillard, and his spouse Amanda Gillard of Tomball, TX.

Joyce was passionate about so many things in life, with her number one passion being her family and how she loved them all. She enjoyed music of all genres, dancing, playing card games, and reading. She loved to travel and see new places and in her younger years loved to ride her Honda motorcycle, as well as being William’s Cub Scout Den Leader for 5 years where she was awarded many accomplishments and honors. She found her second family in her Red Hat Society group where her sister Paula and mother in law Pat shared a membership.
There will be a viewing on Wednesday March 28, 2018 held at McNutt Funeral Home at 7pm where the family and friends may say their goodbyes, the Graveside service will be held later in the year when Joyce’s son William is able to attend. This service will be held in Plantersville, TX at the Plantersville Cemetery. The Celebration of Life will follow directly after, the location will be disclosed at a later date.
