In memory of Joyce-Singha-Gosh, who passed away suddenly on Saturday, November 15th, 2014.
Although we only knew Joyce for a little while, she made a positive impact on all of us who knew her. There are many questions pertaining to her sudden death, but it appears, from one of the Facebook posts, that Joyce passed away from a heart attack, which proved to be fatal. She is survived by her husband Maunish and two sons.
Joyce was an immigrant from India and came to the United States with her parents and siblings and settled in Chicago, Illinois. She had a healthy perspective on what it meant to be a citizen of the USA. Although she liked writing about the customs of her former homeland, she was fully integrated into American society.
Joyce was the Politisite Human Interest Editor and since her arrival at Politisite on June 17th, 2013 she wrote 142 articles. The author met Joyce during their time as writers at Allvoices. This resulted in her invitation to write at Politisite. Her experience as an immigrant gave Joyce a special vantage point on politics. Although she was a graduate in Films and Communications, she found herself gravitating toward writing.
She has made short documentaries for UNICEF and Indian TV. Joyce also wrote for Yahoo, Allvoices, The Examiner and her Blog http://www.joyce-iamwhatiyam.blogspot.com encompassing a myriad of stories on politics, religion, spirituality, family, cultural idiosyncrasies and anything else that caught her fancy. Joyce believed humor to be an essential ingredient of life and loved art, poetry and books.
I have known Joyce Singha-Ghosh since we both wrote at Allvoices and later at Politisite. She had a unique perspective. She was most recently engaged in helping Veterans with PTSD. She will most certainly be missed. My sincere condolences go out to her husband and family. She made an impact on earth and has touched all of us, who knew her.
Most recently Joyce was working on a grant to work with veterans with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and TMI. To be willing to to work with such a difficult diagnoses and veterans, is a tribute to her character and demonstrates the type of person she was.
We at Politisite will miss her writing, but have her past stories as a treasure. Her sweet spirit and humility will be missed.
Joyce was one of a kind. The world is at a loss to replace her, but the heavens are all the more better today.
— with Joyce Singha-Ghosh.
The writers at Politisite would like to extend our sincere condolences to her husband, sons, family and friends. Joyce made an impact on this earth and has touched everyone that knew her.
