Joy Dingman

It is with a very heavy heart that I have to tell you that Joy Dingman passed away last night in her sleep. Joy celebrated her 20th Anniversary with Smokey Bones last July. She was off this weekend to move into a new apartment with the help of her brother and his wife. After helping her finish her packing last night they went back to their Hotel and upon returning this morning they couldn't get Joy to answer her door or the phone. When the fire department gained entry into her place, they found her deceased in her bed. Joy was loved by all who worked here and her Brother says all she ever talked about was how much she loved working at Smokey Bones. I am going to set up a GoFundMe page so we can help her family with her funeral expenses as she had no insurance or savings.
