Joyce enjoyed 27 happy years of her life with Ron until he went to rest, they made many wonderful memories together. They enjoyed adventures in nature, hunting, fishing, and traveling. They also enjoyed doing different projects together such as building of a cabin with Ron’s Nephew, Terry Price (Sue’s son). Joyce also enjoyed cooking, baking, sewing, and quilting. She loved when Maria, Sue’s daughter, and her kids came to visit her. She made Maria's favorite bars, she also had lots of adventures with Sue and Gary, she was delighted when Tiger and Di’ (Michaels kids) came to visit her and Ron. The last trip she made was to visit Roy and Georgia and the grandkids in Minnesota. She related the tale of when Parker caught his first fish, and how much she enjoyed seeing the great grand kids. She lived with Ben and Maria (Lupe) for the last 7 years of her life, and she was very content being taken care by both of them. Over seven years together they became like one, she also enjoyed the company of Chris very much.
Joyce learned about the beautiful promise that God has for us, to be resurrected by His loving Son, in a perfect life and youthful. She wanted to be remembered as she was in her early years. She hoped to be brought to life in the resurrection and meet with Ron again.
