Joyce was born on January 23, 1940 in Pollock, NC to the late Martin and Maggie Bell Batts. She was the widow to Mr. Edgar Chestnutt “E.C.” Herring and a retired cashier with Clinton City Schools.

She leaves behind to cherish her memory, her daughters, Debra Norris and husband, Chad of Raleigh, Beth Rackley of Clinton; sister, Judie Clark of Knightdale; brother, Ronnie Batts of Spivey’s Corner; five grandchildren: Jamie and Heather Rackely; Evan, Kameron and Austin Knight; and four great-grandchildren: Kelsi Rackley, Cooper, Case and Rafe Knight.
