I wasn't around Aunt Joy much growing up in California, but I have very fond memories of the times I was. I remember her visiting us when I was a teenager and had only been driving for a short time. We went to visit a place near us, and I was driving Joy's large car because I knew the how to get there. On the way, a woman in a much smaller car, in the lane to my right, suddenly turned left in front of me. We hit her very hard and spun her car around, but thank God she wasn't injured. Joy was very calm, assured me that it wasn't my fault and then immediately went to check on the other woman and spent time with her making sure she was OK. Joy finally came back to the car and got in the passenger side and without hesitation or recrimination. I was very shaken, but will always remember how she treated me and the other driver with respect and gentleness. Her faith was always evident in the way she acted. She will be missed.

As your name suggests you brought "JOY" to all who knew you. We will always have fond memories of our times together in the Camera Club.
