     Joyce graduated from Plain City High School and Bowling Green State University.  She was a homemaker and, for a time, a substitute teacher for Putnam County Schools.  She was a member of Riley Creek United Methodist Church and the United Methodist Women.  She treasured memories of her childhood on the banks of the Big Darby near Plain City and long country drives with Carl and the kids.  She was a master cook and baker of bread and pies and loved the farm, reading, crossword puzzles, animals, crocheting, cooking for family gatherings and traveling to visit family.  Her family and friends will remember her gentleness, kindness, and unconditional love, her creativity, her subtle sense of humor, and her adventurous spirit that culminated in a Riley Creek United Methodist picnic hayride two weeks before her death.
