Regina M. Joyce, L.P.N., 73, a resident of Linwood Nursing and Rehab Center, died Thursday evening at the center. Born in Pittston, she was the daughter of the late Thomas and Regina Kelly Joyce. She was a graduate of St. John’s High School of Pittston and the Brooklyn, NY School of Nursing.

She is survived by one sister, Jule Ann Festa, Scranton, numerous nieces and nephews. She was also preceded in death by two sisters, Mary Therese Rosato and Ellen Guzzi. Regina had a huge heart and quick wit. She was a big animal lover and hopefully she is reunited with her dog Odie in heaven. Her niece Gemma Rosato would like to thank the nurses, aides and staff, especially Pam, for giving Rhea such excellent and compassionate care while she was a resident at Linwood Nursing Home for the past seven years. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Tuesday, at 10 am in St. Ann’s Basilica Parish by the Rev. Fr. Francis Landry, C.P., Pastor.
