Jim and Family, May you be comforted by prayers from family and friends.
Our family was so fortunate to meet Joyce at her granddaughter Brenda's wedding. Such a lovely and gracious lady! We feel so blessed that our son Steve has been so lovingly accepted into such a wonderful family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.
As I read Joyce's obituary, so many memories came flooding back. . .from swim meets to all the parties in the basement at the "Lett house". She built an amazing family, and looking at pictures posted on social media, she greatly influenced her children to build family in the same way!
I pray that all your sweet memories bring you all comfort.
My prayers are with all of you. I have wonderful memories of Joyce from my childhood, the fun times in Menasha and later in Muscatine during our Easter visits with our family. Love to all.

Side note: she knew when to reign you all in and when to let it go...even though I am pretty dang sure Lettenberger kids she knew exactly what we were up to when we were kids....
