So sad to hear that Joyce has left this world. She was a wonderful woman and mother to her kids. 50 years ago I started working on the Dedrick’s dairy farm. I worked through high school and then again a few years later. I may not have been the greatest of employees, but I learned about hard work and about life. Pat and Joyce were exceptional role models. They were also our youth leaders for several years at the Delevan United Methodist Church. I can not say enough good things about Joyce and Pat and their fine family. I extend my deepest condolences and sympathy to this wonderful family.
