Joyce was a member of the United Methodist Church in Grundy. She enjoyed participating in devotions and bible study. She enjoyed games especially game apps on her tablet. Joyce was very proud to be an independent woman. Joyce revolved her life around her family, other than a quick $20.00 limit at the Isle Casino; her greatest pleasure in life was to visit her kids and grand kids. She loved supporting them by attending their activities and sporting events. The daily calls from Randy and Laura truly made her day.
