Dear Glen and girls, Your Christmas card came back I knew something had happened. I am so sorry to hear this news. We wish God's blessings on your family this holiday season. There are no words to express how much your family has done for us when our kids were little. I am so sorry for your loss. Mary Bodin & family.

Joyce was an amazing friend! I will forever hold her in my heart. She had so many talents, baking and sewing were 2 of them that she shared with me. She always baked me pumpkin bars and brought them to work, and altered my dress pants whenever I needed it! Joyce always offered a kind smile and words to help soothe any situation I needed advice on. I will never forget the time on this earth that I got to call her my friend, and look forward to meeting her again in heaven. R.I.P Joyce, gone but NEVER forgotten. <3

I am so glad God blessed me with such an amazing aunt. I will never forget all of the memories I have from visiting Glen, Joyce, Wendy, and Julie in Minnesota all of these past summers. It was always fun to see what had changed or get caught up on all of the little things. Joyce always made sure us kids had something to do and were having fun. I loved getting the chance to bake with Joyce and I'm glad she taught me different things to do and try in the kitchen. If I was ever having a problem, Joyce always had some kind of advice to help ease the problem. She is one of the strongest most determined people I know. She will be greatly missed by all. I look forward to the day when we meet again in Heaven. God is lucky to have gained such an amazing, talented, wonderful person at his side. Joyce has, and always will be loved by her friends and family. Love and prayers to her family and friends. May we all continue to keep the faith, love, and support one another just as Joyce did for us. May peace be with her as she has taken this next step in her journey..

I knew Joyce through her daughter, Wendy, a former co-worker, and only saw her on two occasions: Wendy's wedding and a MOCA walk. Both times she greeted me with her dimpled smile. I found her to be so warm. My deepest sympathy to Wendy and her family members. May the faith that she apparently had comfort and strengthen you. Lane Gans (Maplewood, MN)

I am so thankful for the gift of knowing Joyce. She was a light to me when things were very dark in my world. She was a mentor and a friend. I love her with a love that will never end! We will continue where we left off in Heaven some day.
Love and prayers to Glen, Wendy & Julie.

I am so glad God gave me a chance to meet Joyce. A woman of such great faith. Even when she was sick, she gave hope and encouragment to those around her. A shining star now in Heaven, she will truly be missed by many. My prayers are with you Wendy, Julie and Glen.
