Obituary for Joyce Annette Hilyard
Joyce Annette Hilyard (Jiles) of Edwards, IL passed away on April 20, 2021 at UnityPoint Health Methodist in Peoria.

She is survived by her husband, Dave Engfer; 3 sons, Ryan, Aric, and Justin; 2 grandchildren, Addyson and Grayson; parents, Jim Jiles and Juanita Dale, and 6 siblings, Carol, Mike, Steve, Jenna, Jeff, and Lynn.

She loved spending time outdoors, sitting around a bonfire, playing with her grandkids, and was an excellent violin player. She had the most infectious and recognizable laugh and the best whistle on earth. She was the kindest and most thoughtful person around. She is loved and will be sorely missed.
