November 25, 1935 — June 5, 2016

Joyce Daphne Straughn, 80, of Griffithville passed from this life into the arms of her eternal Father on Sunday, June 5th, 2016. We are thankful to know that her suffering in this life has ended and she is now rejoicing in glory with our heavenly Father.

Daphne was a United States Army Veteran. She was also an ordained minister with the United Methodist Church. She was a member of Living Water Full Gospel Church in Des Arc, Arkansas.

She was preceded in death by her mother, Lola Straughn; her father, Thurman Straughn; and her sister, Karen Straughn Gonzales, all of Batesville, Arkansas.

She is survived by two nephews; Luis Gonzalez (Barbara) of Syracuse, New York, and Lance Gonzalez (Lori) of Syracuse, New York; one niece, Sabrina Knefel (Troy) of Warrenton, Virginia, and two great nephews; Blake and Deacon Knefel.

Daphne was and still is deeply loved as a mother, by her nephew, Luis Gonzalez. She is greatly missed by her family and friends. We are comforted knowing she is feeling nothing but love for eternity.
