Joyce is survived by her children, Krista (Steve) Piraino of Bossier City, Louisiana, and Eric (Allison) Schultz of Whitehall, Pennsylvania; her grandchildren, Avery Piraino of Dallas, Texas, Ross Piraino of Bossier City, Louisiana, Nathaniel Schultz and Lucas Schultz of Whitehall, Pennsylvania; step-children, Lila (Anthony) Jones of Texas, Gretchen (Skip) Kelley of Thomasville, North Carolina; four step-grandchildren; sisters, Freda (Bill) Cook of Central City, Iowa, Beth (Dave) Seltrecht of Center Point, Iowa; and several nieces and nephews.

Joyce was born February 15, 1943, in Urbana, Iowa to Fred and Millie (Dodge) Aurner. She married the love of her life, Lyle Edward Schultz on September 5, 1964. She sold Avon, making President's Club and winning many awards before moving on to bigger and better things - selling cars at Tauder Ford, in Phoenixville, Pennsylvania and then Alexander Ford in Murfreesboro, Tennessee until retiring in 2009. Again, she won awards for her sales and was successful in a field with few women.

Joyce was a collector of many things and found many outlets to encourage her habits like couponing, flea markets, Avon Collectors Club and Doll Club. She was a Cub Scout Den Mother for many years. She also enjoyed researching genealogy and was a supporter of the Center Point and Alburnett Historical Societies.

Sorry to hear about Joyce. Rode the bus with her when we were in school at Urbana.

We remember Joyce with great fondness from her many years of working with us at Alexander Ford. Always ready with a smile, she never met a stranger and always saw the positive side of every situation. Joyce knew that Melanie had a sweet tooth for her trifle and made sure we had it every year at our holiday "food feast". She spoke often and lovingly of her children and family. We are so sorry for the loss of Joyce personally and for the loss of your mother. She was a lovely person who touched the lives of many.
