Joy was born on December 24, 1926, the only daughter of Carl & Rosella Stettner. Her father always said that Joy was the perfect name, as she brought joy to him and anyone who knew her. Joy’s first years of schooling were at the Black Spring Ridge one room school. She rode a horse to attend school those years, then finished her schooling at Carmangay. Joy lived on her fathers farm until she married Amos, and moved a whole _ miles. She helped her husband every day with the farm chores. Joy loved to curl, get together with friends to play cards, and she loved music. She participated for many years in Barn Dance and was asked by many to sing at weddings and funerals. She was a long term member of the Priscilla Club. In her later years, she and Amos loved to travel, especially bus tours where they made many new friends. After the passing of Amos, Joy moved to the Sierra Condo’s in Lethbridge where she resided for 6 years. Again making many new friends, which she always was good at. Her optimism and sometimes mischievous personality will be greatly missed by all who knew her.
