Joyce Denise (Burns) Weldon, 44, died following a courageous battle with cancer on Friday, June 3, 2005 at Lodi Memorial Hospital in Lodi.

Mrs. Weldon was born Joyce Denise Burns on June 25, 1960, in the town of Roseville to Bert and Wilma Burns. She attended Kindergarten in Roseville before moving with her family to Burson.
