With family by her side, Laura "Joyce" Rupp, age 83, of Haddon Heights, NJ (formerly of Cherry Hill, NJ) was welcomed home to heaven on May 25, 2018. Beloved wife of John S. Rupp for 63 years. Devoted and proud mother of Joanne L. Mason and Lorraine J. Wilson and her husband Kenneth B. Wilson. Loving grandmother of Aaron J. Mason and Laura E. Mason, and great-grandmother of Aidan J. Mason.
Joyce dedicated her life to spending time with her family and serving the Lord. Her spirit of love, caring and kindness was felt by all who knew her. She was an amazing woman of God, beautiful both inside and out. She was also known as a fervent prayer warrior, always putting others before herself.
Joyce was very active in her church and spent more than 50 years teaching Sunday School. She had a positive impact on the lives of everyone she taught. She loved to help people and volunteered for her church's food pantry and other activities that provided her an opportunity to serve the Lord and impact lives.
Her family has fond memories of doing fun things with her like trips to NYC to see Broadway shows, summers in Ocean City, NJ, and vacations in Florida. She loved to travel the world with her husband, her favorite place being Italy.
Joyce followed along with her father's and sister's love of antiques and had her own antique business (Rupp's Antiques) for close to 50 years. She made so many lasting relationships with the people who walked through the doors of her shop.
Arrangements by Dubois Funeral Home, Audubon, NJ. Contributions can be made in Joyce's name to New Covenant Community Church, 255 Edgewood Avenue, Audubon, NJ 08106. Honoring her request, there will be no funeral service and internment will be private.
