She enjoyed travelling to all 50 states and other locations with her husband of 53 years, John. Joyce had a passion for spending time with her family and friends. She loved watching Ohio State football games with her husband, and going to various festivals with her daughters. She spent most of her life supporting her children and grandchildren.
