A longtime resident of Southfield, she was born in Akron, OH, February 22, 1926 to Ruth G. and Joy T. Loeb. A graduate of Ohio State University, Joyce worked for many years as a bookkeeper at Providence Hospital in Southfield. She met Ellis Rabb in Akron and they married in 1951.

Beloved sister and aunt, Joyce had a quick smile and a kind word for all, and was genuinely interested in all those with whom she came into contact. She was an avid and accomplished needleworker and cherished her many dear friends and enjoyed their regular weekly card game. She volunteered as an usher at a local community theater, and was a longstanding member of Temple Beth El in Bloomfield Hills. In her later years, she enjoyed attending concerts at her synagogue, and took up chair dancing in her 80s.

Joyce was predeceased by her husband and their son Lee. She is survived by her sister, Maxine L. Wolin of Tucson; niece Ruth Wolin of Cardiff, CA; nephew Gilbert (Gail) of Wayland, MA; grandson Ellis of Pontiac; several grand-nieces and nephews; longtime companion Irving Ray; and her devoted aide, Monique Halloway.
