Aunt Joyce was always very positive and carefree. She was the “fun” aunt. When my grandfather Brand lived by the railroad tracks, my parents, Lloyd and Alma Scott, would not let us play by the tracks. Aunt Joyce and Uncle George would secretly give us pennies to put on the tracks so the train would flatten them. It was such fun and excitement for us. I know Aunt Joyce did that to get the kids out of the house so the adults could visit in peace and quiet (I think she also did it to get at my mother, her older sister).
