She returned to Minnesota and began her family.  While raising her two children she reconnected with her passion of caring for others and enrolled at Bethel University.  She graduated in 1993 with a Bachelor of Nursing.  Her ability to complete the rigorous training was an encouragement to those around her.  She began her career in Chattanooga, Tennessee in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.  Her career spanned several decades serving critically ill children throughout the metro

Joyce was united in marriage to the love of her life, Christopher Barnes on April 21, 1996, at the Como Park Conservatory.  They made their home on the East Side of Saint Paul for several years, before moving to Wyoming, Minnesota.
