Joyce was born on September 7, 1935 to Albert and Delia Nelsen in Brookings South Dakota. She married the love of her life, Jon on November 3, 1956. Jon enlisted in the Air Force and they raised six children while touring bases from Puerto Rico to Japan, with many in between. They retired from the service and moved to Wheatland in 1976 and to Cheyenne in 2008.
Joyce was preceded in death by her daughter, Janet Cochran.
Joyce is survived by her husband Jon, children Joan Patton, Jon Larscheid Jr (Candy), Jillaine Graves (Steve), James Larscheid (Valerie) and Joseph Larscheid; fourteen grandchildren and sixteen great grandchildren.
Joyce devoted her life to her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren and her faith. She lived a life full of love, devotion, and selflessness. She loved having a full house and family around, the more the merrier she would say. Where family was that was where she wanted to be. She was known for always sending birthday/holiday cards to all, always being well stocked in treats for the kids, and being in the cheering section for concerts, plays, sports, graduations, weddings and baby showers. She was always showing her love and support for her family, whether they were close or far. Joyce loved to laugh and will be remembered for her quick wit, constant cheerfulness, and a love/hate relationship with the Denver Broncos.
