Besides her parents, Virgie was preceded in death by her husband, Linwood Bryant Joyner, and all her siblings.

Left to cherish her memory are two daughters, Linda Joyner Whitley of Henderson, Nevada, and Carolyn Joyner Clopton of Roanoke Rapids, NC; two sons, Linwood Earl Joyner of Woodland, NC, and Bob Joyner and wife, Nancy of Aulander, NC; four granddaughters, Beth Pittman and husband, Kenny and Becky Patrick and husband, Jason of Roanoke Rapids, NC, Kimberly Joyner of Charleston, SC, and Crystal Joyner of Pendleton, NC; and four great grandchildren, Olivia, Jackson, Brandon, and Noah.
