Joyce married Billy Jensen on October 12, 1962, in Aberdeen, SD and they were happily married for 47 years.  They joyfully raised 9 children while farming various grain crops and raising livestock in rural Aberdeen.  Nothing brought her greater joy than raising her children, farming with Bill, and taking care of her many grandchildren.
