Joyce affirmed that her husband Edward did this.

She had a gift for hospitality. The kitchen was always open to those that stopped by. If her sons’ were not there first, the cookie jar was always full. She was a grand cook with the most caring heart. Her family meant everything to her, raising four wonderful children who have carried on the strong family values and traditions in which she and Eddie lived by. She was extremely proud of her grandchildren and great grandchildren. Her home was full of many pictures displaying her pride. She was a baptized member of the Froid Lutheran Church and she was active in ladies aid, her church bible groups and bible studies.
