Joyce was my neighbor for many years and she and her husband were patients that I took care of for their eye care. She will be missed in the neighborhood but I am sure her best friend Marilyn Meads is in Heaven with her.

Condolence from Carol Zeman on June 29th, 2022 5:54 pm

I am so sorry to hear of Joyce’s passing. I was just thinking of her as I passed her house on my way home in Glen Burnie. How she loved her green house and gardening and getting things together . She was a wonderful person. She was always involved with some committee with in the church. She has been and will continue to be missed.

Condolence from James Maddox on July 31st, 2022 1:30 pm

I love Mrs. Regino! She always treated me like I was her son. When I was a little boy in Glen Burnie MD I lived on the same street. I would often go to house and talk to her. She always listen to me with a caring heart. I remember one time it was just a few days before Easter and I was over Ms. Rego and in Idle conversation that I wanted a 4 foot Chocolate Easter bunny as gift from the Easter bunny! Easter morning came and I did not see one in my Easter basket. Then Joyce Rego called my mom and told my mom on the phone to have Jimmie go out on the front porch and look. I walked to the porch and oh my Gosh – there was a 4 foot Chocolate Easter bunny for me from Mrs. Rego to me! I was so happy and so grateful. She treated me like I was her son, She knows how to warm hearts. Joyce is the most caring person in the world- or shall I say the most wonderful person in Heaven, now!
