Joyce Margaret Doom was born on June 14, 1954, at Weiner Memorial Medical Center Marshall, to Remi and Harriet Doom. She was baptized, received Holy Communion, and confirmed at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Cottonwood, MN. She lived at home until age 34 when she moved into a REM home in Tyler, MN, in 1989, and in 2017, she moved to a REM home in Marshall.  Our family cared for Joy as she grew up. She brought great “Joy” to all the people she met and reminded people the importance of finding happiness in life’s little blessings. Joy loved music and enjoyed bouncing along to the beat. Christmas was an annual highlight in Joy’s life, she especially enjoyed crumpling and tossing the wrapping paper after the opening of gifts. 

Joyce is survived by her siblings Monica (Donald) Senden of Marshall, Bernie (Duane) Louwagie of Marshall, Jenny (Ralph) Dieken of Marshall, Steve (Brenda) Doom of Cottonwood, 16 nieces and nephews, extended family, friends, and caregivers.  She is preceded in death by her parents Remi and Harriet Doom, sister Colleen, and twin nephews.
