Joyce had a love for animals, especially her cats. In her spare time she enjoyed crafts, specifically crocheting. She held many different jobs, mostly working at grocery stores but also as an elementary school teacher’s aid, selling Avon, and even a census taker. More than anything she was a loving wife, getting married young after WWII, and a loving mother, grandmother, and sister.
She is survived by her children: David Shenfeld and wife Natthida, and Aretta Shenfeld; grandchildren, Matthew-Lloyd Shenfeld and Natchaya Shenfeld; sister, Alice Etter; and several nieces and nephews. She is predeceased by her siblings, Ruth Williams, Mildred Kreiser, Clarence Melvin Fager, John Fager, and Ruby Crow.
