Joy was also a loving pet mother as well to, Jazz, Darla and Jackson Marshall Wellington. Joy was a lifetime resident of the Township of Saddle Brook. Joy was known for her passion of being an Italian American and beloved Unico Member. Joy had a huge place in her heart for her friends and family. She loved her dialysis nurses, Yvonne, Shirly, Marita and Lucy. However the one who took up the most place in her heart was her beloved grandson Braxton. Joy would go beyond belief to assure Braxton was loved and had all he wanted and needed. Honorably, she was the first in the family to be able hold Braxton after he was born
Back in 1972, at Holy Trinity Church, is where Joy would meet the love of her life and future Husband, Edward M. Ebel. Although it was originally set-up as a blind date, that date would lead to forever more. Three years after that iconic day, Joy at the age of 18, and Ed, 19 and now a Marine, had gotten married. It is then they both picked up and moved to Camp Lejeune, North Carolina. When Ed was discharged from the Corps, Joy and Ed moved back to Saddle Brook.
An avid New York Mets fan, there was never a single minute missed during the season. Joyce was known as the color commentary of the family. Whether it was a home run or as simple as a base hit, Joy would scurry to her phone to let her loving Son, Sister, Brother and Husband know what had just occurred. Although sometimes frustrated with the result, Joyce would never give up on her team, she loved them dearly. Joyce was also known for her love for football and the Las Vegas Raiders. Her passion for the Silver and Black will forever reign in our hearts and memory.
Joys love for music was remarkable. Whether it was classic rock or heavy metal, there was never a single moment that her favorite tunes werent blasting. Either in the car or at home, you can hear her music from miles away. Joyces favorite musical artist, Carlos Santana, was constantly being played wherever she went. She also enjoyed listen to bands such as Dokken, Led Zeppelin, Earth Wind and Fire, and Black Label Society, Joys passion of music was gifted to her son, Edward T. Ebel. Joy loved her sons passion for music. She loved when he would play his guitar for her. If it wasnt for her, there is no doubt that he would not be the guitarist he is today.
Joyce really enjoyed her extended car rides with her loving husband through 7 Lakes Drive. Bear Mountain was one of her ideal places to go. She loved feeding the animals and catching the sounds of nature, sitting by the water and enjoying the beauty of the running streams. She had great times doing this. Joy truly enjoyed tuning into Yacht Rock on SiriusXM radio, jamming to tunes with her husband, dearest friends Marilyn and Joe Z, as they would all go to Monticello Casino.
