OBITUARY ~ W. JOYCE (CALDWELL) JOHNSTON

W. Joyce JOHNSTON was born and raised near Mount Ayr, Iowa on a farm, was a high school cheerleader and married her high school sweetheart. After marriage Joyce was a stay-at-home mom who enjoyed raising her children and supporting her husband.

From Iowa Joyce and Andy settled in Colorado Springs, Colorado where they always remembered taking their children trick-or-treating in the snow. They also lived in Kansas City and Belton, Missouri and O'Fallon, Illinois before retiring to San Antonio, Texas.

Joyce enjoyed genealogy and amassed a large amount of family history. She also enjoyed quilting, crafts, "messing" with her plants and was an avid reader.

Joyce loved the holidays with Easter and Halloween being her favorites. Her love of Halloween is tied to her children's memories of her enjoying the soap opera, "DarkShadows."

She enjoyed playing cards and board games especially with her granddaughters.

Joyce was a former civil servant who started her federal career working at the Internal Revenue Service in Kansas City. After the IRS Joyce worked for several years at Richards Gebaur Air Force Base (AFB) before following her husband to Scott AFB and finally Randolph AFB.

Joyce is preceded in death by her parents, Glen and Velma CALDWELL of Mount Ayr.

Joyce is survived by her devoted husband, H. Andy JOHNSTON of over 53 years; children, Julie HOBBS (Kent HOBBS) of Littleton Colorado, Michael JOHNSTON of Springfield, Virginia and Susan SPENCE (Scott SPENCE) of San Antonio, Texas; three granddaughters, Jessie SPENCE, currently attending Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas and Madison and Kathryn HOBBS of Littleton, Colorado.

She was a devoted wife to her husband, a loving mother to her children and a doting grandmother to her three granddaughters.

Joyce was known for her quick wit and sarcastic dark sense of humor.

A burial and service are planned for early summer in Mount Ayr.

The family asks that donations be given in Joyce's name to Saint Labre Indian School, P.O. Box 216, Ashland, MT 59003.
