Condolences for Joyce E. Larson



Joyce was a truly amazing woman. She always kept herself busy and enjoyed socializing. I loved that she never sugar-coated anything, never harsh but in a wonderful matter-of-fact way. She was smart, kind, and generous. I will always picture her and Mary sitting in the 300 Day Room playing Scrabble, Quirkle, or some other game. We all miss her greatly.

Mary, please accept my deepest condolences on your mother's passing. She was an amazing person and truly lived a full life!
From Randy Lyden


I am glad that I was able to know Joyce, she was quite an amazing woman and will be missed. Joyce was always to the point and witty, a quality I love to see in those I care for. My sympathy to you and your family.
From Deanna K. (Hillview Nurse)


I'm so sorry that you've lost your mom, Mary. She was such a "lady", She was always so upbeat when I was still able to visit her. She certainly had a full life. I enjoyed reading about all of her accomplishments. What a nice obituary! I know you'll miss her, Mary. My thoughts are with you. Lovingly, Sandy

I got the wonderful opportunity to work with Joyce at Gundersen in the billing department in 1991 (I was 19 years old). I am now celebrating 30 years working at Gundersen. Joyce was a lady that I always looked up to and will never forget. I always looked up to Joyce for wonderful advice. One thing that I will always remember about Joyce is she would always wear a dress to work and what such a neat person she was. I want to give you my sympathy for the loss of a dear loved one.

We are very sorry to hear of Joyce's passing, Mary. She was a wonderful neighbor and I'll always be grateful to her for teaching me how to make krumkake. I still make a batch most every Christmas, just the way she taught me so many years ago. With our deepest sympathy, Patty & Ralph
