Her foremost concern was the well being of her family as she always made time for them and to spoil and love them all.

She was preceded in death by her parents; three sisters, June (and Clarence) Cook, Marjorie Smith and Dawn (and Ronald) Schmidt; two brothers in infancy, Rodney and Lloyd Carter; one son in law, Charles Paquette; and four brothers in law, Merle Caauwe, Vern Hartwick, Les Knudson and Eugene Olson.

Joye will be dearly missed. My daughter Madison and son Jackson will miss her the most. Joye was Madison's buddy and always had time to talk with her. Joye also had Madison helping her with the followers. Jackson loved to give Joye a hard time, I think with Al's help. Joye and Al did come to some of Jackson's wrestling matches which meant a lot to him. I would like to thank her for being a great neighbor and for the time she spent with my kids. Also the kids would like to thank her for all the snacks :) Al if there anything that you need just let us know. The Warmington's

We are all so sadden of the loss of Joye! She was so wonderful to Madison and Jackson, they just loved going over to visit. Madison spent many hours just hanging out with Joye, helping with the flowers, reading or just visiting. Any time Madison and Jackson had something they wanted to share or show anyone they had to run over and show Al and Joye too. Her loving kindness for both Madison and Jackson will never be forgotten! We will be thinking of you all during this difficult time and will be sending thoughts and prayers. If there is anything we can do please just ask!
