Joyce J. Lindstrom Age 91, of Coon Rapids Passed away peacefully on July 23, 2020 Born April 30, 1929 to Floyd and Evelyn (Anderson) Godel.

Joyce attended Warren public schools. Following graduation, she attended the Teacher Training Class in Warren and taught at the rural school in Luna for two years. She went to Moorhead State, and then taught at Twin Valley, Minnesota for one year.

In June 1952, she married Morris Lindstrom of Osakis, Minnesota. In December of 1952, they made their home in Coon Rapids where they raised their family.

Joyce was a “stay-at-home” Mom during the years her children were growing up. She taught piano lessons during that time. Joyce and Morris did a lot of camping and traveling in the summer months. When their daughter was in high school, she began working part-time for a typing service at the University of Minnesota, typing Ph.D’s, term papers and resumes for students. At the same time, she was the church secretary, typing the weekly bulletin, newsletter, etc. Gradually that job increased to include computer work (recording contributions, printing checks and accounting). Joyce retired on April 30, 1997.

Preceded in death by her husband of 64 years, Morris; son, David; brother, Duane (Georgie); sister, Shirley (Jim).

Miriam and family, I am very sorry for your loss. When someone dies, we get to learn all these neat things about them. I never knew your mom taught piano lessons :) I wish I could have known Joyce, as anyone who raised a daughter like you was clearly someone I would have enjoyed meeting. Fortunately, her memory will live on through you and your caring, compassionate, and empathetic ways.

Joyce and mom were first cousins. Oh, what fun they had when they could get together for a visit. She was what mom always called "one of my dear cousins". My deepest sympathy to all the family.

I am one of Joyce's nieces. When I was young my siblings and I took piano lessons from Joyce. Joyce had the patience of Job since neither me or my siblings had much natural talent. She was a very sweet woman, very classy, very gracious. I admired her homemaking skills. She didn't seem to get flustered with the hordes of young cousins that descended on her home. She was one of my role models. She will be missed.
