Joyce Hoyt Metzger was born to Lynn and Doris Sauter Hoyt during the Great Depression. She travelled around South Dakota with her parents and younger siblings as they worked the harvests in South Dakota, mainly staying close to Milbank where she, her father, and his mother were born. In the fall of 1941 she and her family came to Cozad to help her aunt and uncle work the harvest for a local farmer that lived north of town. Her parents decided to stay and she attended school in Cozad. She married Daniel Metzger in 1950 and they made their home in various Nebraska communities as he worked for the railroad. They later returned to Cozad to stay where their children grew up and attended school. Joyce loved to play bingo. It was her biggest passion. She also loved to have coffee and visit with friends and family. She loved to be on the go constantly. She worked in her later married years at F & S Sausage in Cozad making great hot dogs! She was a frank person with a loving and giving heart. She loved her children and grandchildren and often went without what she needed so that she could give to them. She fought a tough fight with diabetes and finally succumbed to it when her heart gave out in April of 2001. She left behind nine children and many grandchildren and great grandchildren. She was known and loved by many.
