Joyce K. Caddell, 85, passed away peacefully surrounded by family on Friday, March 10th. She is survived by her loving husband, John, with whom she celebrated 65 years of what the couple often characterized as "a great and enduring love story." Joyce and John traveled the globe for both business and pleasure and were always seeking new destinations and places to explore. They were true life partners including founding a construction company which they operated for the first three years from their home. This business quickly grew into a major international organization with projects worldwide.

Joyce and John have also shared a passion for giving back to the local community. Their charitable activities have touched thousands and the John & Joyce Caddell Foundation will continue to give generously to a wide array of local community outreach, educational, and cultural organizations.

Joyce is survived by her five children, Cathy of Montgomery (Charlie); Mike of Carmel, California (Cynthia); Kirby of Alex City, Alabama (Robin); Jeff of John's Creek, Georgia (Ellen); and Chris of Pearland, Texas (Patti). Grandchildren are Mac, Chad, Christine, Chapman, Clea, Matthew, and Andrew; and great grandchildren Madi, Cole, Jacob, Cooper, and Beau.

Visitation will be take place on Wednesday, March 15, at 1:00 pm at Alabama Heritage Funeral Home. The Celebration of Life Service will be held afterward in the Alabama Heritage Chapel beginning at 2:30 pm with Rev. Jerry Gunnells of Mobile officiating. The pallbearers will be grandsons Mac, Chad, Chapman, and Andrew, as well as nephew, Robbie Chastain, and special family friends Eddie Stewart and Bobby Garrison. The family would like to extend special thanks to Dr. David Thrasher who took such extraordinary care of Joyce and was always there when needed. Grateful hearts are also extended to Janese with Alacare Hospice and the Answered Prayer staff, and especially to those "angels" Octavia, Connie, and Justine that took such loving care of Joyce in her last year.

In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to Montgomery Area Council on Aging, 115 E. Jefferson Street, Montgomery, Alabama 36104, or to your favorite charity.
