Joyce and her loving husband lived life to its fullest, traveling extensively to many parts of the world and were members of the International Pentecostal Campers Club. They were virtually inseparable for their seventy wonderful years of marriage.

Joyce’s legacy lives on in her children. She cared for her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren in a manner unsurpassed. Her prayers for her children could be heard throughout the house daily.
