Joyce & my Aunt Bev were the best of friends. I remember when The Christensen family came to Minnesota in 2006. I drove Karen & Susan to Faribault to visit Joyce. They hadn't seen each other in many years. Joyce & her dear sister prepared all of us a wonderful lunch. We all enjoyed a very special day sharing memories of years gone by. What an exceptional woman. We were blessed to know her.

My sympathy to the entire Drager family. Joyce was a very special lady. I enjoyed visiting with her at the numerous family functions over the years. Cherish your memories of her and know she is at rest and in the loving arms of George, Mike and all of the other departed family members.
