Obituary for Joyce Layfette "J.L." Gore

Joyce Layfette Gore (J. L.), 86, went to be with the Lord on December 26, 2018 at home in Hurley, Mississippi. J.L. was born on December 2, 1932. He was preceded in death by his wife of 66 years, Dot Gore, his parents, W. N. and Ethel Gore and his daughter-in -law, Janet Lynn Gore.

J. L., better known as Bro. Gore, spent his life in ministry with Mississippi Free Will Baptist Churches. He pastored for over 60 years and started several churches through Mississippi Home Missions of Free will Baptist. He was always willing to preach or sing about his love for Jesus and praised Him with his voice and his life.

The family would like to give a special thanks to our caregiver, Dawn Knippers for seeing to his every need and providing him with unlimited supply of milk shakes. The family would also like to express deep appreciation to the Encompass Home Health and Hospice Group (especially Debra and Nita) for making his last days as comfortable as possible.

To all our family and friends, your calls, visits, meals, and prayers have given us strength and held us up. We will be forever grateful for your expressions of love.
