Joyce A. (Conefrey) Nelson, 70, of W. Bridgewater, formerly of Brockton, died Saturday, Oct. 27, 2012, at Signature Healthcare Brockton Hospital after a brief illness.
Joyce was born and raised in Brockton, a daughter of the late Robert T. and Helen T. (MaDan) Conefrey, and lived most of her life in Brockton before moving to W. Bridgewater.
