I began working labor and Delivery at St Cloud Hospital in 1974. I remember Joyce as a very kind joyful person who loved caring for babies in the nursery. It was always a pleasure working with her. She and Louie were also neighbors since 1975. Joyce and Louie were always kind to us and our children. I still cherish the Christmas tree ornament she gave to our oldest daughter many years ago. Joyce was a wonderful person and will be missed.
