Funeral services have been held for Joyce Hoffner Pearson, senior vice president and general merchandise manager of dresses for Ross Stores Inc., who died Jan. 15 at the age of 67 after a long illness.
Pearson was a lifelong dress enthusiast whose interest in what would become her vocation commenced at an early age when her mother, Mildred, taught her how to sew during her childhood in Worcester, Mass.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
