Joy Jamison, 79, of Champaign passed away November 3, 2019 at her home. She was born a daughter of Erlene “Lee” and John Barham on September 1, 1940 in Champaign. She was raised in Champaign and attended Champaign High School. She married Jerry Jamison, also of Champaign, on June 8, 1958. He preceded her in death. Also preceding her in death are her parents; brother, Johnny Barham; and sister, Marianne Day.
            She is survived by her daughters, Julie (Steve), Jill (Clyde “Lucky”) Jamison- Horton of Champaign, Jody (Craig) Dedon of Westfield, Indiana, and Jennifer Sanders of Champaign. She is also survived by 10 grandchildren, 4 greatgrandchildren, and brother, Thomas Barham of Champaign. She was anxiously awaiting the arrival of 2 more greatgrandchildren upon her passing.
            Joy worked at Jewel Deli for 9 years before finding her true joy of being a daycare provider. She owned Joy’s Day Care for over 20 years. She loved children and being a grandmother. In her later years, she ran “Grandma’s Taxi” and would plan her days and trips well-out in advance to ensure she could get her grandchildren to school and every function desired. Not only would she give her grandchildren rides, but she would welcome neighbors and friends. Everyone Joy met was considered a friend. She will be missed by so many.
She was a member of Windsor Road Christian Church. She loved the Lord, her family, and the people surrounding her. She was an avid Savoy Walmart shopper and enjoyed socializing with the employees.
