Joy was a very talented seamstress. She was a retired Librarian from Washington Township school district in Toledo, Ohio. She was a devoted mother to her two boys. She loved spending time with her grandchildren. She would love it when her grandchildren would come visit her. It was the highlight of her day! She loved to golf and race sailboats in her early days. She will be dearly missed by all her family, friends, and especially all the nurses and staff at Hardin Hills.
