"I knew Joyce when she and Mark lived in Kasson. I never knew anyone with such brilliant blue eyes, and so full of mischief! I hailed also from Winona so we had that in common also. She was a good friend and was wonderful to be with. i enjoyed her over the top view on life! Never a dull moment when Joyce was around! Judith Horton-Holm, Owatonna MN"

"Joyce was a fun lady. She had a great sense of humor that would catch me off guard! I know the last few weeks of her life were difficult. Now Joyce is free of pain, which makes me smile for her. Rest in peace, Joyce."
