Joyce Durnbaugh Hullings, 90, passed away peacefully in her home in Milton, DE. on Sunday, November 24, 2019. Joyce was born on May 31, 1929, at the home of her grandparents, Joseph and Lillian Durnbaugh in Capitol Heights, MD, to the late William F. Durnbaugh Sr. and Hazel E. Durnbaugh (Gray). She is survived by her brother, Leonard E. Durnbaugh (Judy) of Chesapeake Beach MD.

On February 9, 1948, she married her soul mate and love of her life, Raymond A. Hullings Sr. Together they had three children Carol Ann Smith of Naples, FL, Susan Hullings Mattia (Jerry Pirrung) of Milton, DE, and Raymond A. Hullings Jr. of Mt. Vernon, KY. The family grew to include four grandchildren, Dawne Castellano (Timothy), Tammy Madden (Ronald), Christopher Mattia (Lisa), and Cheryle Holmes (Steven). Five great-grandchildren: Roxanne Perez (Ashton Thomas), Kayla Madden (Chris Edmonds), Alexander Perez, Ryan Perez-Rodrigues (Wilson), and Shane Madden. Four great-great-grandchildren: Kaidence, Levi, MaKenna and Kyleigh (step). She was preceded in death by her parents, brother William F. Durnbaugh Jr. and lovingly devoted husband of 41 years Raymond A. Hullings Sr.

Joyce lived a full life that included graduating from Maryland Park High School in 1946. She was a proud homemaker and mother. She taught Sunday School for 46 years at her former church, St. Barnabas Episcopal Church in Oxon Hill, MD. For the past three years, she has been a member of The Episcopal Church of St. John the Baptist in Milton, DE, where she regularly attended and remained involved with the Sunday School. She enjoyed watching baseball, in particular the Washington Nationals. One of her greatest pleasures was being able to watch the Washington Nationals win the World Series this year. She enjoyed being active in her garden, swimming, dancing, and spending time with her family.

I remember when Mom first moved over here, and Susan brought her out to the Cracker Barrel and we had brunch.
She was so happy, she liked the food there and was so happy to be out and about.
I will be forever grateful for the times i got to see mom and spend time with her, she was a beautiful person.
She is with her beloved now, dancing and enjoying herself, happy and pain free.
Sincere condolences,
Wendy Gill
