"Aunt Joyce was the last of her generation of the Reider family. She was such a warm, caring person. She was always smiling and cheerful. Aunt Berna told me how wonderful Aunt Joyce was to our Grandma, Mary Reider, (Uncle Genes's mother). If Grandma wanted to go shopping downtown, Aunt Joyce would get the kids together and walk downtown with Grandma. When I attended NMU, I used to visit Aunt Joyce every couple of weeks and bring my laundry. She thought it was silly for me to spend money doing it at the dorm. She very patiently taught me how to fold a fitted sheet; a skill I've never forgotten. Very often she would have me leave the laundry and she would do it for me! She was always interested in what I was studying and how I was doing in my classes. The visits with her helped ease my home sickness. Wonderful memories for me. "

"To all the Reider family, our thoughts and prayers are with you in the loss of your special mom. For a little lady, she sure was strong and full of life. May God strengthen and comfort you now. She was always at Mass, so we are offering up Masses for her soul at our church here in Duluth, so as to keep remembering her throughout the months ahead. The first one will be on her birthday, March 24. ???? Diane (Ogle) and Mike Mlinar"
