    AZ Dear Ole and Family,
    I am saddened to hear of Joyce’s passing. I have such fond memories of visiting with her at Alsager Family Reunions and more recently at Carly’s wedding. May all your wonderful memories help each of you during this difficult time.
    Love and Peace,

    Broadus MTLike Bonnie, I remember the ball games. Also, church functions, being neighbors, etc. Most of all, I remember Joyce and Ole being such good sports letting us raise the roof in their basement with our band’s racket! Probabllly the only “Vibrations” were the floor joists and kitchen utensils rattling when we played our hot music! I believe Joyce’s legacy exemplifies the words found in Prov. 31:10-31. may God’s Grace envelop you all at this time. Steve

    Port Orange FLDear Ole, Jennifer, Jackie, Neil and families… So sorry to hear of the loss of Joyce. I can still see you (Ole) and Joyce sitting in the bleachers- faithfully watching any ball game there was in Kindred. I always thought that was very special that you supported your children in whatever they did and all the sports that Kindred had. My thoughts and prayers are with you as we remember Joyce.
    With Love, Bonnie

    To Ole and family

    My sincere sympathy to you in the passing of your wife of many years. You made such a nice couple. Memories of school days at Barrie come to mind as we spent a couple of nights with your folks during the ND
    blizzards when our parents couldn’t come to get us. I also enjoyed your visits at sister Eileen’s apt. in West Fargo. I know DuWayne enjoyed that too. May Joyce rest in peace. She was a good woman and you have many happy memories of her throughout your life time together.

    Blessings to you and your family.

    Arla Mae (Hagen) Discher
