Fast forwarding to her years in Jasper that began in the mid 1980's......

Joy worked for many years as a waitress and later in office management at the Woodbridge Inn.  She also worked as a cook at the Speedburger.  She was well known and appreciated for her hard work and diligent efforts.

On January 16, 2009 Joy was privileged to become wife to Terry Drew Warden.

Together they built a life of peaceful contentment.  What a blessing to spend the final 15 years of your life with someone who cares deeply for you.  For this she was truly grateful.
