Also in 1960, Joyce became an active member of the Grace Lutheran Church in Phoenix. She taught Sunday School for 10 years, served on the Church Council, sang in the church choir and filled in as church Secretary when the need arose.

Joyce is survived by her brother Harry Kepler and his wife Mary Ellen; daughters Kathleen Patrick and her wife Irene, Kolleen Kepler and her husband Theodore and Tammi Erdman and her husband Robert, Jr.; and grandchildren Daniel Kepler, Shelby Erdman, and Robert Erdman III.
All will remember Joyce for her lovely smile - a smile that was always so easy to bring about.
