Joyce Louise Burnett was born July 10, 1947 in Fargo, North Dakota to John and Genevieve (Nordstrom) Burnett. Joyce grew up in Moorhead, where she graduated high school in 1965. She then attended Minnesota Bible College in Minneapolis. It was there that Joyce met the love of life, Gerald Albert. On June 17, 1967, they were united in marriage at Church of Christ in Forest Lake. Together, they partnered in dedicating their lives to ministry and the service of others. In 1981, Jerry and Joyce arrived in Kimball and have been an integral part of both their church and local community since. They were proud to call Kimball their home. Joyce enjoyed quilting, reading, sewing, and crocheting. She had a love of music; she shared her voice with many ministries, congregations, and clubs over the years. Her passion for her faith and family will be deeply missed.
