Armstrong: Joyce Ann Poindexter touched a lot of lives

A viewing will be at 9 a.m. Thursday at New Hope Temple Baptist Church, 312 Manheim St.,  followed by a funeral at 10. Weather forecasters  are calling for snow. In a weird way, that's a good thing. Otherwise, it would be standing room only in there.

    I don't often write about people who die of natural causes. That's the job of obituary writers. But every so often, I hear of someone who's such an integral part of the Philly scene that I'm moved to make an exception.
