Biography – Joycelin (Joyce) was born in Bog Walk St. Catherine, Jamaica (West Indies) on October 17, 1949 to Reuben and Hilda Latchman. She attended Tulloch Primary School in Bog Walk and St. Catherine High School in Spanish Town Jamaica. In the late 1960’s Joyce migrated to Brooklyn, New York, USA, where she attended Grace Beauty School. During her time in New York, Joyce also worked for a number of companies including Merrill Lynch, Pierce and Fenner & Smith Inc. In 1969, she married Hector Feliciano (deceased) and they later moved to Erie Pennsylvania in 1978. Joyce relocated to San Francisco California in the early 1980’s and worked as a Customer Service Representative for ATT, where she met and married a fellow worker, John Anthony (Tony) McDaniel in 1988. The McDaniels resettled in Kansas City Missouri in 1990 to be near Tony’s family.
Joyce is one of Jehovah’s Witnesses and during her time in the Midwest, she served in three congregations, Lee’s Summit, MO, Camden County, MO, and the Country Club Congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses in Kansas City Missouri, where she currently serves. Joyce is fondly remembered by all as being deeply appreciative and positive, despite going through difficult health issues over the years.
Joyce retired from ATT in 2011 and relocated to Osage Beach, Lake Ozark, MO from 2011-2015. She came back to Kansas City in 2015 to be nearer to her children. Joyce spent most of her time serving her God, Jehovah and spending time with her son, daughters, granddaughters, and great granddaughters. When she was not in service with her spiritual brothers and sisters, she could often be found reading her Bible and taking every opportunity to share Bible teachings with those who crossed her path.
Joyce fervently believed in the Bible’s promise that the earth will soon be restored to its original paradise condition worldwide. As she endured illnesses toward the end of her life, she remained confident that she would be among those resurrected to enjoy that restored paradise.
