For Joyce

In Memory of Joyce Laughery
2/26/48 – 1/12/07
“The Rose Still Grows”


Joyce was a visionary, a pioneer, a friend. She sought to unite groomers across the world in one spot where they could share, learn and support each other. She changed the face of our industry and the paths of hundreds, if not thousands, of pet stylists. In her own quiet, humorous and straightforward manner, Joyce gave us not only a home, but also a voice. The embodiment of her dream can be found at The effects of her work cannot be measured. Thank you Joyce! I celebrate your life.
