REEDVILLE—Joyce Delano Greer drifted into the arms of Our Heavenly Father on October 19, 2021, in Lottsburg.
She was born October 18, 1949, in Washington, D.C., to Halley Delano Carter of Callao and Harley Q. Carter of Georgia. Joyce was married and divorced from Robert Greer, deceased.
Joyce spent her summers growing up in Callao on Harry Hogan Drive, at Aunt Gee’s, a glorious childhood paddling the river.
She became a beautician, then later attended Montgomery College in Rockville, Md., acquiring a degree in architectural technology and construction management in 1984. She went to work for the Hymen Construction Company in field management and construction management. Her position took her to Boston, Miami, Los Angeles and Philadelphia from 1984-1989.
She achieved her LEED Green Associates USGBC in 2007 through continuing education. Joyce then became owner/consultant of JD Greer Consulting, LLC. She also worked as a project manager for Robert H. Gawen & Sons Excavating, LLC in Hague, and as a project manager for Eagle River Construction from 2013-2015. Joyce managed projects through NNPDC for FEMA & V-Dem. And was the executive director of the Masonry Institute of Maryland from 2002-2014; and the Masonry Executive Director Council (National) in 2003.
Joyce’s experience garnered her an abundance of knowledge which developed her into a brilliant consultant. She constantly received calls from architects and contractors around the country seeking her expertise. She is missed.
Joyce loved this country, was a great patriot and deeply proud of her heritage in the Delano family.
Her love for her friends shows in in all who were devoted to their friendship with her. The greatest love of her life was found in David Silberman, and she didn’t hesitate to tell all her friends. Thanks to Welch Funeral Home for such tender care. Thanks also to Kim for taking good care of Carmen; and VCU, VIBRA, and Sheltering Arms, for their excellent professional care.
Joyce came back to settle in Callao where she had the happiest days of her life, spending time on the Yeocomico River and enjoying eating crabs with her favorite gentlemen, David and Billy Silberman.
