In Memory of Joyce Nixon

 

 

Joyce Nixon, beloved wife of deceased husband Chuck, recently passed away peacefully in her sleep on August 16. Both Joyce and Chuck were longtime members of the Aston Martin Owners Club since 1966.  Known for their beautiful Aston Martin DB2/4 Mark III, both Chuck and Joyce were active racers of their Aston Martin.  Joyce volunteered her time as Editor, publisher and distributor of the AMOC East publication for many years. They created and ran the annual Aston Martin East Coast meet in Limerock Ct. for 10 years.  This event has turned into the largest annual Aston Martin car event in the US. A trophy was created recently for the recognition of their dedication while members of the club. It will be presented annually in appreciation of the dedicated member who is invaluable to the success of the club. This years recipient was awarded to Northeast Area Rep Malcolm Burwell.  The video of this presentation can be viewed on the Facebook site of Phil Sudenfield. Joyce was able to listen to this video and was very appreciative of this recognition for her and Chuck. Unfortunately Chuck passed away 2 weeks before the trophy presentation.  She had a amazing talent for growing beautiful indoor plants and outdoor flowers.  She also had a love for animals including her amazing life-like aquariums and colorful finches.  Both she and Chuck loved their cockatiel named Sam who lived for many years. They were both very active members of Phoenix Landing which is a adoption and education center for parrots.  Their pride and joy was their parrot Paulie who gave them many years of happiness.  At night Paulie slept in his beautiful cage (palace) that Chuck had built for him.  Chuck did beautiful finish carpentry as a hobby.  During the day Paulie was outside his cage and followed Joyce and never let her out of his site.  He gave much happiness to Chuck and Joyce for many years.   He is currently being well taken care of at the Phoenix Landing.  Joyce will always be remembered as a gracious and generous friend to all who knew her.  Her wonderful spirit will be sorely missed.
