Aunty Joyce Williams: Almost a Century Worth of Resistance and Still Fighting Strong
In many ways, Nan is like a real-life superhero torn from the pages of a Marvel or D.C comic. She was taking care of me and my health issues, she was raising my siblings, making sure we were always fed (her homemade damper a delight), keeping that red roof over our heads, driving us to school to receive an education. That same love has been shared with her grandchildren, children, and many nephews and nieces throughout a near full century of living.
