Our condolences to the entire family. We will always have very fond memories of Aunt Joy. Over the years she made us feel that we were a part of the family. Her life continues through her great faith and her family.

Joy and I had a lot of good times in the few years we knew each other. We often said “we could write a book” with some of our antics and experiences! Unfortunately I knew her during the years that she was at her worst, physically. She taught me a lot about stamina and determination. I will miss our daily chats and knowing she is right next door. 🙁 Rest in peace, pain free, Joy!! Love, Becky


I am so blessed to have met you. I will never forget the advice you gave me, and the talks about the trips you took, and the Milwaukee Road!
You will be missed by many! Rest in peace, until we meet again “cookie”

Joy was my glamorous aunt. When I was 10, she was only 28 and always looked beautiful Her hair and makeup were perfect, her clothes were elegant, I thought she looked like a movie star. I wish I knew how to scan in the pictures of the cutie she was then, and she never lost that edge. Lynn Niederfeld Morgan
