Who is Joyce Caracci?
Joyce Caracci was born into a sharecropping family in rural Neshoba County Mississippi where she graduated as “Miss Arlington High” class of 1950. Her lifelong commitment to health care, which had always been her calling, began with her studies at St. Dominic’s Hospital in Jackson.
In 1976, Joyce, an experienced nurse, her husband, Victor, and a third person started the Sta-Home Health Agency, Inc. to provide home health care services in Mississippi. Joyce had strong Christian beliefs and was committed to helping those in need. She was passionate about children, child birth and pro-life, and contributed tirelessly both physically and financially to these causes.
Pro-Llfe Mississippi is pleased to offer the “Joyce Carraci Scholarships” as a memorial to our beloved benefactor Joyce Carraci.
