Joyce taught for three years at St. Rose. The end of her working years outside of the home, Joyce worked for Lawrence in his CPA practice for many years.

In her younger years you could have found Joyce in a bowling alley. She also enjoyed her times at the lake and was an avid reader. Movies were also one of her favorite past times. Joyce spent many a day on the ballfields watching her boys play football and baseball. She loved to keep notes of innings pitched and strikeouts which one could have found posted on the wall in her kitchen.
