Joyce was born in Lansing, Michigan one cold February midnight, the sister to four elder siblings. As the youngest child she grew to learn to “hang tough” during the rocky times of life. People sometimes see her as aggressive and outspoken but she uses those characteristics to speak up for those who have no voice. This tenacity of will, her love for words, and her hope in Jesus brought her to the news industry. It’s also helped keep her marriage to her beloved ministerial husband alive for more than 44 years. Joyce is retired from TriStates Public Radio WIUM/WIUW of Macomb, Illinois and has spent many years working as a volunteer with the Salvation Army. Joyce now resides in Cleveland, TN. where she is currently studying for licensure in Clinical Mental Health at the Pentecostal Theological Seminary.
