Joy Lee Manuel of Fairhope passed away Sept. 1, 2019.
Joy wasn't one for formality and requested a simple notice of her death be published.
Joy enjoyed collecting driftwood and sea glass along the shores of the bay. She was also an avid walker, vegetarian, and loved animals.
Joy loved her daughter, Leigh Manuel of Nashville; her cat, Chloe; and her daughter's cats, whom she affectionately referred to as her "grandcats."
She will be sorely missed by those who knew and loved her.
Joy's daughter would like to thank her mother's kind friends and neighbors, and her Aunt Marcia Manuel. Also, a special thanks to the employees at Mitchell Cancer Institute in Fairhope and Springhill Home Health & Hospice in Daphne.
