Joyce was retired from the former Mapa Pioneer in Attica where she had worked for over 25 years.

Joyce enjoyed working outside in her yard and tending to her flowers, volunteering at the Attica Food Pantry, and walking with her girlfriends.  She also enjoyed participating in the Relay for Life with her sisters.  But the thing she loved most was spending time with her three daughters and their families, as well as visiting her brothers and sisters.
