    Always enjoyed working physical therapy with Joyce even though she would roll her eyes and say “noooooo” when I walked in her room at the hospital and then smile.

    My deepest sympathy to the Stork family and to Monte, Sue and Jane. Joyce, Margaret Mines Geibel and I were best friends in grade school and through high school. She was always a caring a loving best friend. Even though the miles and time separated us, she always had a special place in my heart. So sorry to hear of her passing.
