A Wyoming native, Joy was the youngest of six children born to Frank and Ollie Kane in Douglas, WY on December 10, 1950.

Joy and Claude had two children, Tiffany Ann (1971) and Samuel Matt (1974). In 1978, Joy and Jeff Sorenson began their life together and were later married in October, 1998. The two spent their lives living and working the Middle Prong Land and Livestock Ranch while raising children, chasing grandchildren and donating time to the Arvada Community.
Joy enjoyed sewing, photography and traveling. She spent several years happily following children and grandchildren around the state in their various sporting and schooling events. She rarely missed an opportunity to show her support and take pictures. She was a very active member of the Arvada Community and was the go-to person if an event needed organized or someone needed help.
