Joyce was born in Slayton, TX to Wilmer & Mira Peacock. She graduated high school with the
Paducah class of ‘44. In 1948 she married Charles H. Goodwin in Paducah. Together they
worked and raised their family.
Joyce worked a variety of jobs but primarily worked with the Cottle County Tax Assessors Office. She served on the Paducah Library Board, the Museum Board, and was a member of the 1st United Methodist Church. Her true occupation was making a good home for her family. She loved being a woman of great integrity, living an independent life and caring for her husband and children. She was a serene, gentle and caring person with a witty sense of humor. Caring for her family, friends and spoiling her cat gave meaning to her life.
She had a unique outlook on life and believed that "Don't worry about what you can't change.
Things will work out in the end."
In her quiet time she was an accomplished seamstress, making the clothing for her children when they were young, playing bridge with her friends, reading, working cross word puzzles, driving in the country and holding babies.
