It is with deep sorrow and much love that we mourn the passing of Wanda Joyce McClanahan of New Smyrna Beach, formerly of Celebration, on Thursday, September 22, 2022, at the age of 61 years.
She was born on April 2, 1961 in Grundy, Virginia, the daughter of Paul Q. McClanahan and Wanda Case McClanahan. Joyce spent her life serving others, first as a food service manager for the Osceola County Children’s Home, then as a personal care giver. She spent her time caring for others and loving on her family. Joyce loved anything that had a connection to Kentucky, Virginia and Connecticut, always embracing the changing of the seasons.
She will be lovingly remembered by her son, Nathan Wozniak (Jenna) of Annapolis Maryland, sister, Patty Walker (Rick) of New Smyrna Beach, Fl., brother Jon Spradlin (Brittany) of Tavares, Fl., brother and sister, Rob & Joy McClanahan of Homecreek, Virginia.
She was the adored Aunt to Joshua, Megan, Sabrina, Gabriel, Christopher, Xander, Sebastian, Jax, Greyson, Noah, and Jonathan. Joyce’s love extended to her great nephews and nieces, McCrae, Liam, Alwyn and Paxton as well as loving on friend’s children as her own.
Joyce was a friend to all who knew her and will be missed by numerous relatives and friends. She loved the words and promises of Jesus. The life that she lived will always be remembered and the love and laughter created will live on forever.
“Honor her for all that her hands have done and let her works bring her praise” Proverbs 31:31
A celebration of life will be held at a later date. Baldwin Brothers Funeral and Cremation Society is assisting the family.
