Joyce was the oldest of three children born to James E. Flannery and Susan (LeDoux) October 26, 1935 in Chicago Ill. Joyce was a full time student with five children under the age of 10 when she graduated with a degree in nursing from Prairie State University, Chicago Heights, Ill., a career she maintained until her retirement.
