EMPORIUM - Joyce M. Lundberg, longtime resident of Emporium, died Saturday (June 30, 2018) at the age of 93.
Joyce was born in Kane on Dec. 26, 1924, to Mabel and Stuart Magnuson. She moved to Emporium with her parents at the age of 5 and graduated from Emporium High School in 1942. Upon graduating from Bryant & Stratton Business College, she worked as an accountant/secretary to help put her husband, Edward, through Pharmacy School. She then continued using her business skills at Burklund and Lundberg Pharmacy, where she thrived on working with the public.
She married the love of her life, Edward Lundberg, on May 25, 1946, and they were devoted to one another for 71 years. Even in the last few years of their married life when they took residency at the Felt Manor Personal Care Home, they never left each other's side.
Joyce was well known in the community, serving Cameron County in many facets. She was a very active member in the Cameron County Arts, Cameron County Historical Society and the Order of Eastern Star Emporium Chapter 101. She served as president of the Ladies Auxiliary of Emporium Country Club, as treasurer of the Cameron County Cardiac Committee for 35 years, and was one of the first waitresses of the Cabin Kitchen. Joyce was proud to be the oldest member of her church family, the First United Methodist Church of Emporium.
She was an avid bridge player and golfer and enjoyed being a part of the ECC Ladies Golf and Bridge Clubs. She found pleasure in teaching her grandkids some of her favorite cards games and taking them out on the course to play a few rounds of golf.
Joyce valued being around members of the community, whether it would be conversing with people at the local grocery store or working with her customers in selecting the best piece of jewelry or the perfect gift. In short, Joyce found joy in people.
Joyce's love of Hollywood films and big band music influenced her to be a star actress in the Emporium Players, Parade of Stars and the "Only Shows" where she won the audiences' hearts. Joyce loved to "run" everywhere she went in town in her stylish high-heeled shoes, fashionable skirts and one of a kind jewelry items and purses. Fast or very fast was her mode of movement whether it be walking or driving her white Cadillac.
Besides her husband, the focus of her love was her two sons, E. Craig Lundberg of Waltham, Mass., and A. Blair (Linda) Lundberg of Emporium; and her six grandchildren, Tom (Courtney) Lundberg, Adam Lundberg, Michael (Allison) Lundberg, Krista (Darin) LeZotte, Brittany Lundberg, Jonathan Lundberg; and one great-granddaughter, Karina Lundberg.
Joyce was a devoted mother and grandmother who attended all of her children and grandchildren's extracurricular and sporting activities. She was their biggest cheerleader and a devoted ego booster to each and every one of them.
Joyce's funeral service will be held at 11 a.m. July 21 at the First United Methodist Church in Emporium with a video tribute and a luncheon to follow for friends and family. The Rev. Joseph Short, pastor, will officiate. There will be no visitation.
Memorials contributions may be made to the First United Methodist Church, 306 S. Spruce St., or an organization of the donor's choice.
