Joy was a devoted wife of more than 50 years. She traveled the world with Howard, first as an Air Force wife who made a new home in 12 cities over 25 years. Throughout all those years and moves, she maintained a deep and abiding love for her childhood friends and classmates at Schoolfield High School.
