Joyce was a great neighbor to Mike and me. She was a warm friendly lady. A few years back we stopped to see her and Len and on leaving I complimented her on some flowers growing in her front yard. She immediately took out several and gave them to me roots and all, and I still have them in my flower bed and think of her kindness when they come back each spring.

Joyce and I were very close for sisters. Even though we lived in separate states, we "talked" every day on the computer and played games together. In her memory, I have sent a. contribution to Faith Evangelical Lutheran Church in Swanton of which Joyce was a devoted member.
