Joyce E Viskeroyce Evelyn (Knowles) Visker was born on May 2, 1924 of Monroe Township, Minnesota the daughter of Roger and Madeline (Drum) Knowles. She graduated from Tracy High School 1942 and started working as a legal secretary soon after. Joyce met the love of her life after high school when John went into the soda fountain shop for a milk shake. It was love at first sight. The couple was united in marriage on July 29, 1944 at her parentâs home. This union was blessed with four children, Katherine, Betty Jo, JoAnn and Jon Dirk. The couple did everything together. Joyce did all of the bookkeeping for their businesses. The couple farmed together as they raised livestock and worked the land. When they were not busy raising their family or working, they enjoyed sitting together at the end of the dock fishing or watching television while holding hands on the couch. Joyce was actively involved at the Church of Christ, acting as the church treasurer for thirty-five years and Sunday school teacher. She also was a part of the Ladies Aide, hosting every Christmas Ladies Aide party. Joyce was the Tracy City Clerk and on the City Council for many years. She was an avid baker, canned most of her garden and was a fabulous cook. Joyce was always smiling. She was described as a classy, loving and devoted wife, mother and grandmother, great-grandmother, great great-grandmother and friend. She will be dearly missed. Joyce passed away and was welcomed into Heaven by Godâs loving arms on Sunday, March 4, 2018 at the age of ninety-three.
