Joyce moved with her parents to Reading, MN at three years of age, where she attended eight years of school in Reading which was District 7. She graduated from Worthington High School in 1949.
Joyce married Frank Rogers on January 30, 1950. They farmed north of Worthington for seventeen years until Frank’s death in 1967. Joyce later moved into Worthington where their five children graduated from high school. She continued to be active, enjoying life, friends and family, especially watching her five children and grandchildren play in various sports. She loved the Twins, Vikings, Gophers, and all the WHS sports.
