Joyce Peterson Dale Obituary

HILLSDALE - Wife, mother, grandmother, musician, gardener, chef, stylist, photographer, navigator, bookkeeper, researcher, publisher, camper, and best friend, born February 27, 1940, passed away December 2, 2015.

Will be missed by husband of 55 years Bruce, sons Greg (Nita), Jeff (Marcia), and Chris (Angela), and grandchildren Grant, Deven, James, Lynne, Erica, Harrison and Sierra. Brothers, George and Tom Peterson. Sister-in-law Denise Arthur.

Joyce often travelled throughout the world with her husband, Bruce, while he was on assignment for National Geographic. She was caring and generous. In the Commonwealth of Dominica she learned of need for school text books and arranged for twenty thousand books to be delivered.

Burial will take place at a family plot in Hillsdale, Michigan. A memorial concert is planned for friends at a later date in Arlington, Va. Arrangements are entrusted to the VanHorn-Eagle Funeral Home in Hillsdale.

Joyce would be pleased if you planted a flower or a tree in her memory.

Not gone. Just away.
