Joyce worked at the Odessa American Newspaper for many years in advertising.  She left and became a financial consultant with A.G. Edwards, retiring in 1999.  Joyce was featured in the Woman of the Permian Basin in 1998 for her successful work.  She was also a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution.

Joyce’s family would like to thank Hilda Guajardo for her tender loving care and friendship given to Joyce.

As a follower of Jesus Christ, Joyce was baptized when she was a child and again when she was an adult.  She attended the Church of Christ.
