Immediately after graduating from Lincoln High school, she headed to help you Portland to visit Reed, where she came across this lady real love, Duncan MacGregor ’51. The fresh diminutive Joyce (4′ eleven”) had an enormous, fun-enjoying identity-the ideal foil so you can Duncan’s measured, academic, and big characteristics. It was a complement built in paradise, and they married for the 1951. It increased around three children and transferred to Italy in 1972 having their youngest daughter into the pull. So it designated the start of several years away from traveling, excitement, the latest restaurants, the latest family unit members, and several hilarious hijinks.
Immediately after Duncan’s death this present year, Joyce is productive into the members of the family lifetime up until a recurrence of breast disease into the January, following a 20-12 months remission. Into stop, she stayed one away from elegance, and you will slipped out quietly once good three-time hospitalization.
