We lived just down the street on Clayton Avenue when our three boys were young. The boys would go down to Joyce and Ronald's home and offer to rake the leaves for Joyce or mow the lawn. She would always let them rake but mostly play in the leaves. The boys never quite finished raking the leaves but, Joyce would always pay them any ways. She said she was paid by the joy those boys gave her while she watched them rake and play in the leaves.
I will always remember Joyce's kindness and friendship. During a particular tough time for me Joyce surprised me with a cake and a simple gift of a wall plaque that said "When Life Gives You Lemon, Make Lemonade. It was a great day that I will always remember.

Joyce was a member of the Scott County Woman's Club and that is where I met her. She always had good ideas and was very creative. Her sunny disposition made work seem like fun. I will miss her and I am sure many others will feel the same.

With Sympathy and Love, Rich and Kathy Schumann
