Joyce was an active member of the LDS church and held numerous callings in each organization. She served two missions one to Omaha Nebraska, Winter Quarters Mission and one to Montreal Quebec. Joyce worked hard all her life at many different jobs. She finally retired at the age of 82. Then, she volunteered at the Bear River Valley Hospital, the Senior Citizen Center and the Genealogy Library.
