Joyce Sprague, 84, of West Long Branch, NJ, passed away on January 11, 2024. She was born on June 17, 1939, in Long Branch to Frank and Josephine (Mazza) Grandinetti. Joyce was preceded in death by her parents, and her husband John Sprague.
An extremely charitable person, Joyce was known for her kindness, generosity, and thoughtfulness towards others. She dedicated herself to helping those in need, caring for her parents, husband John, and her aunts Rose Pecyno and Angeline Ward until their passing. Whenever help was needed, Joyce was always there to lend a helping hand.
Joyce attended Star of the Sea Academy for her primary education and later graduated from Red Bank Catholic High School, class of 1957. She went on to have a successful career as an executive secretary, working for Keith Arcomano for 25 years.
In her free time, Joyce found solace and spiritual guidance at Star of the Sea and St. Anthony's places of worship. These were special places for her where she could connect with her faith.
Joyce is survived by her younger sister, Janet, her nieces, Jessica and Tiffany and was close to a cousin Sister Judy Ward, RSM. She will be deeply missed by her family, friends, and all those whose lives she touched with her kindness and compassion.
Please join in celebrating the life of Joyce Sprague and remembering the impact she had on all of us. Visitation will be held at the Damiano Funeral Home in Long Branch on Saturday, January 20 from 9-10 am followed by a 10:30 am Mass at Star of the Sea Church in Long Branch. Interment will be at Woodbine Cemetery.
