Joyce married the "Love of Her Life", Myron A. "Choke" Graham in Pontiac, Michigan on November 30, 1946; he sadly preceded her in death on August 25, 1997.

Joyce and Myron owned & operated the Chokes Gull Lake Market (just west of the Kellogg Bird Sanctuary) for many years. She was a 50+ year member of the Redemption Lutheran Church, and enjoyed sewing, being active in her church, and drinking wine ("A glass a day is good for the heart and keeps the doctor away").
