Obituary for Joyce T. Fleer

Joyce T. Fleer, 75, of Panama City, Florida, passed away Saturday, October 7, 2017. She was born November 16, 1941 in Good Hope, Georgia to Thomas and Ruby (Meadows) Towler, both deceased.

Joyce grew up in Good Hope, and loved sharing stories of her childhood with her family. She became a military wife in the summer of 1962 when she married her husband Buddy Ray Fleer, and together they had two children. After many years of moving from one Air Force Base to another, Joyce and Buddy settled down in Callaway when he was stationed at Tyndall AFB. They lived out their remaining years together until Buddy’s passing in 1991. Joyce worked at the Tyndall Base Exchange over 20 years before retiring. Some of the things she loved the most were spending time with her children, grandchildren, and spoiling her dog, Digby.

She was preceded in death by her first husband, Robbie Nelson Hester; second husband of 29 years, Buddy Ray Fleer; and niece, Angela Towler Evans.

Those left to cherish Joyce’s memory include her daughter, Brenda Fleer Cosson (John Mass); son, Ray Fleer; four grandchildren, Donovan Ray Fleer, Warren Lee Fleer, Danielle Loraine Cosson and Hilliard Trey Cosson (Kayleigh); great granddaughter, Willow Ann Fleer; brother, Harold Towler (Jonnie Mae); three nephews, Terry Towler, David Towler and Danny Joe Fleer; two nieces, Deanne Stone and Teresa Willingham; faithful companion, Digby; as well as numerous cousins and friends.
