PARKERSBURG, W.Va. (WTAP) Joyce Batten is May's Mom of the Month. She was nominated by her daughter, Alexis Batten.
Joyce had no idea that members of the WTAP news crew were coming to visit her at work to surprise her with a bouquet from Crown Florals.
She also received a free massage from New Image Aesthetics.
Both women say they are grateful for each other.
"I feel great about it, I mean my kids are my life," Joyce said. "Me and my husband have been together since we were in high school and we've raised them, and we are pretty proud of them, and obviously they're proud of me so that makes me feel good."
"She does everything for our family," Alexis said. "She helps us whenever we need it; she's always there."
