Joyce graduated from Southeastern High School in 1953. She loved attending reunions with her classmates. Joyce retired from the US Post Office. She was the first female rural mail carrier in Ross County. She was a retired bus driver with Adena Schools. She also worked at the Budd Company in Frankfort.

She was a member of Our Savior Lutheran Church in Chillicothe for over 30 years where she played the organ and piano. She volunteered on the Concord Township EMS.

She was very outgoing and enjoyed being "on the go". She never met a stranger and was kind to all she met.
