I will miss Joce so much. She was always there for me as a big sister, but she was even more like a second mom to me. She was my biggest cheerleader, my protector, my advocate and confidant. We talked on the phone as often as we could, and filled in the rest of the time texting. Though we were so far apart geographically, we were always with each other in spirit. One of the more recent memories of Joce was this short text convo we had, after sending her some flowers when she was in the hospital:

Joce Rios:
Thank you and the Ohana for the beautiful flowers and card. I love it very much.

Jodi Benevides:
It's really pretty!!

"Joce Rios:

Jodi Benevides:

My heartfelt sympathy to Joey and to Jocely's family.
My coworker & newest friend, for the very brief time I knew joyful, eager to learn all details regarding her new job, also about all things Iowa and the Midwest, and always grateful for that information. I will truly miss this fun-loving woman with a great personality. Peace to you, Jocelyn.

So sorry not able to attend services....out of state at this time.

I worked with Jocelyn for many years at Kaiser in Honolulu. She was ALWAYS smiling, happy and very kind. I especially recall our potlucks and the great food she used to bring to the department. Her Mom, Sybil was also working at Kaiser at the time and you could just see the love between them. Then Jodi came along and also worked at Kaiser so Jocelyn was able to enjoy her family both at work and at home.

I know she will surely be missed by her family and friends. I got back in touch with her through Facebook and was so happy to see her smiling face.

God bless her and her family at this time of sorrow.

Love to all, Suzanne
