Joyce was united in marriage to James Harold Brune on November 28, 1973. Jim & Joyce resided in rural Frazee for over 40 years. Joyce was a homemaker and mother of two sons. She loved both families and all family gatherings.
Her greatest pleasures was all of her flower gardens and feeding the birds. She loved every flower that God put on this earth. Also, so special to Joyce was the dogs. Her favorites were Tiny, Fuzzball and Zero. And now we have BB.
Also Jim & Joyce grew the biggest vegetable garden and gave to anyone that wanted. The biggest thing was the squash. She didn’t like them. And if anyone needed a chocolate chip cookie, they knew to stop and see Joyce, best cookies ever.

Joyce was and now is a ray of sunshine overlooking a field of wildflowers and all the birds are singing like angels. She’ll be truly missed.
