Joyce was a long-time member of the Wasaukee Horse Club. She was a talented artist and loved to paint.

She could be seen turkey hunting, trail riding on the farm with her friends, and barrel racing her horses through the IRA, WRA and NBHA. Joyce enjoyed her work on the farm and had a special affection for the calves.
