She attended District 46 West Cedar Valley School, rural Elgin, first through third grades, and St Boniface Catholic School where she graduated high school with the class of 1947.
Joyce lived at home and helped out the neighbors and family with cooking, cleaning and live-in caregiver.
She was united in marriage to Alex Thramer from rural Clearwater, on August 29th, 1950, at St Boniface Catholic Church, Elgin.  Joyce and Alex farmed for the next 9 years southwest of Clearwater and Neligh.
In 1959 they moved their family to Ewing, where they purchased the Gamble Store.  Through 59 years Joyce was always at Alex’s side and his partner through many endeavors and challenges: raising a family of 8 while working long &  hard on the farm, running the Gamble Store, Two Rivers Steakhouse & Cafe;   labored at Thramer Irrigation for 32 years until their retirement in 2008, while at the same time keeping up with Alex’s entrepreneurial spirit and dreams. Joyce had a passion for softball,  pitched for over 40 years, and proclaimed “the best darn fast ball pitcher in the country”.  Through the years Joyce enjoyed adventures  with Alex & his planes, bowling, skiing on  Goose Lake, Summerland dances,  Two Rivers days, where she was quoted as “the best bartender in Holt County”;  golfing outings with her grandchildren; and getting down and dirty in her flower gardens.

Joyce was an avid family history buff, and enjoyed countless days and years searching and connecting with family & friends.  The proof is in her collection of the multitude of history albums and scrapbooks! Anyone could ask her about anyone, and she would get back to them with all the details.
Joyce was a lifetime and devout Catholic, a parishioner of St. Boniface, St John & St Peter’s Catholic Churches, & Christian Mothers.
She was a  Ewing Community Club and Summerland Golf Course member, and Den Mother for the Boy Scouts.

It is with tears of joy, celebration and peace that we commend the soul & spirit of our Mother, Grandma, sister, aunt, cousin & friend, to the glory and kingdom of  God, where she will be reunited with her parents, husband, Alex; her beloved daughters, Bev Thramer & Carol Jackson; grandson, Joshua Thramer;  her sister Phyllis Beckman; and her brothers Louis, Jim and Dean Kerkman, & a host of family and friends, greeting her with open arms.
