Joyce (Nelson) WRIGHT Obituary
Passed away Sunday, June 15, 2014 surrounded by her four children she so loved and who loved her dearly. Joyce was a nice Minneapolis girl who lived her childhood on Victory Memorial Parkway. She graduated from Patrick Henry High School and went on to the University of Minnesota where she earned a Business Degree. Kindness and grace were her calling cards and her compassion knew no bounds. She was a loyal friend and kept kindergarten, high school, college and work friendships for her entire life. She was an eternal optimist who saw nothing but overflowing glasses and lots of lemonade, and found goodness in everyone and the bright side of every situation. She was a wonderful wife, mother and grandmother who will be missed so much by her family. She is survived by her son Patrick and his wife Heather, her son Daniel, her daughter Jane and her husband Randy, her daughter Mary Jo and her husband Peter, and her five cherished grandchildren Jack, Liza, Kate, Elle and Madeline. She was laid to rest between her beloved father and husband in her family's grave at St. Mary's Cemetery in Minneapolis, among many family members who preceded her. May she rest in peace and find as much joy in another world as she brought to the lives of all who loved her. A reception honoring her life will be held at the home of her daughter and son-in-law, Jane and Randy Norgard, 32 Raven Road, North Oaks on Wednesday, June 18, beginning at 4:00 in the afternoon.
