She graduated from Delmar High School in 1956. Joyce married Paul Seivert in Davenport, IA on July 20, 1957. The couple then moved to Sioux City to start their family and their chiropractic practice.

In her younger days, Joyce was an avid bowler, competing in the state tournament for many years. Later, Joyce was able to enjoy a bit of traveling, collecting dolls and teddy bears along the way, and capturing her travel memories in scrapbooks. She could often be found on a Sunday afternoon watching NASCAR on TV.
