On August 24, 1963, Joyce married Terrence Carda. After their marriage, they lived in Wakonda for two years and Joyce operated a beauty salon. Then they moved to Yankton and Joyce worked as a nurse’s aide at Avera Sacred Heart Hospital, then managed Dairy Queen for around five years, and finally worked for Yankton Medical Clinic as a receptionist. Joyce retired from the Yankton Medical Clinic after many years of service. Joyce was a faithful member of Sacred Heart Catholic Church, where she served on the funeral committee, EME, and took communion to the homebound. She loved her Saturday morning prayer group. Joyce was also a volunteer at the Banquet for many years. She enjoyed playing cards and especially enjoyed her Bridge Clubs. Joyce enjoyed golfing but most of all, she loved her family and spending time with them. She will be deeply missed.
