Orphaned at the age of 9, Joyce was raised by siblings in Baileyville, Bangor, and California. She graduated from Bangor High School in 1949 and was married to Gordon E. Somers later that year. They moved to Millinocket and raised their family there. In 1984 she moved to Brewer, Maine and resided there until recently.  Joyce had a great love for Bluegrass music and Martin guitars. She attended Bluegrass festivals all over the northeast and Canada.  She played the guitar and sang with many friends in the Bangor area.

Joyce is survived by her daughter Patricia (Arnold) Madore of Millinocket; daughter Daryl (Bill) Noble of Cleveland, TN; son Martin (Laurie) Somers of Bradley; 11 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren.
