She attended college twenty miles away at the University of Kansas were she received a B.A. in Elementary Education and a M.A. in Speech Pathology, as well as being an active member of the Chi Omega Sorority.
While working on her Masters thesis, she met the love of her life and husband for the last forty-five years, Richard. While Richard finished his Doctorate in Mathematics, she supported him by beginning her career as a speech pathologist in Kansas City and Lawrence school districts. Together they moved and spent four wonderful years in Albuquerque , New Mexico , where she had her two sons David and Jon.
Joyce and her family moved to Livermore in 1969 where she continued working as speech therapist with special needs children in Livermore and later in the public schools of Pleasanton .
She had a love for antique furniture, silver, quilts and a good game of Bridge. She was especially found of music, and was eager to play her flute, piano or antique pump organ whenever asked. A strong Christian woman, Joyce was an active member of Granada Baptist Church for the last fifteen years, and chose to live her life by the commandment – "love thy neighbor as yourself." And true to that desire she
she made friends in all walks of life throughout the Livermore Valley and beyond. Those who were friends returned the love and will miss the joy she brought to life.
