Born in Columbus on June 13, 1930, she was the daughter of the late Gordon and Vera Dun.

Joy was a 1948 Sabina High School graduate. She went on to attend Wilmington College. Co-Founder of the Sabina Historical Society, Joy remained active in the organization. With her love of Sabina, she was the author of two books about the history and its people: Sabina Remembered I and Sabina Remembered II. She had a great love of genealogy and traced her and her husband’s family all the way back to the 1600s. In 2010, Joy was named one of the Outstanding Women of Clinton County. She was also a member of the Order of the Eastern Star. She enjoyed time with her family and friends, socializing, and found great joy in attending various musical performances by her son’s band, where she could often be found dancing and singing along.
Left to cherish her memory is her beloved son, Trevor (Cindy Moyer) Shoemaker, of Wilmington; special friend, Sharon Peterson; her sister, Monda Hocfbaum; two nieces and two nephews.
