    Joyce was a classmate so long ago. She was the best friend anyone could ever think of having. She was kind, thoughtful, a great listener, helpful, and sweet. I am over three weeks late in hearing about her passing, I am so sorry I could not attend her services. She was a great friend and I will miss her. Joyce, I want to say once again "Thank You' for sharing the MUMPS.

    Aunt Joyce you will be greatly missed by all. My fondest memories included going to you Chinese restaurant or watching you cook for family gatherings in grandma kitchen you would taste what you were making and wave your hands above your head trying to determine if it's missing anything. I always looked up to you and admire you. I loved the Peterson fiestiness you had .. just like all your siblings. I will miss seeing you. Give every one up there a hug for me and tell them all I love them

    Joyce was such a great friend to my mom and a great neighbor to our family over the years. I enjoyed my association with your mom. She was such a fun and honest person, and raised two awesome sons. She will always have a special place in our hearts.
