I am so sorry for your loss. Joyce was a very good worker at Sioux Valley. She may not have been appreciated by administration, but coworkers loved her. I am so sorry she spent so much time ill. She and I called each other 'old hen' when greeting each other. She is in so much better place--air is free flowing and she doesn't need to be hooked up to that oxygen tube.

I'm so sorry to learn of Joyce's passing. I worked with her at old Sioux Valley hosp. She was a joy to work with and always was so easy going and great to get along with. She never forgot who you were either, as she'd talk to me after not seeing her for many years, as if we were still working together.
