Joyce Bebo

Joyce Marie (Arquette) Bebo August 20, 1946 to Nov. 8 2021


Born in Whitehall, NY to Rose (Bottoni) Arquette and Clarence (Triz) Arquette. Joyce grew up in Whitehall, and after graduating from High School, she attended the Colonna Beauty School in Albany, NY.  She then owned and operated her own beauty salon until 1967, when she married Earl Bebo (also from Whitehall). The couple moved to Nebraska, where Earl was stationed in the Air Force. They started their family and relocated two different times, until finally settling in Rhinebeck, NY in 1977. Here Joyce raised her daughters as well as helping take care of neighborhood children. In 1989 she made the easy transition from watching children in her home to working at Northern Dutchess Daycare for over 20 years. She loved working with the toddlers and seeing them grow. 


Joyce is survived by her husband, Earl, daughters Lynnea Bebo of Rhinebeck, and Renee (Douglas) Utzig of Oviedo FL.  Two granddaughters; Sydney and Riley Utzig of Oviedo FL. Her two sisters; Betty O’Neil of Queensbury NY, and Adele (Andy) Gomez of Cape Coral, FL, and her nephew Andrew Gomez. 


In lieu of flowers the family has suggested donations be made in Joyce’s name to, In Guiding Eyes for the Blind, 611 Granite Springs Road, Yorktown, New York 10598. 800-942-0149
