Joyce was born in Newark, NJ to William and Marie Widerkehr on September 4, 1927. She went to Weequahic High School and after graduation, furthered her education at Rutgers School of Business. She married Richard J. McNall, the love of her life, and they moved to Maryland for several years, until Richard’s untimely death in 1958. Soon after, Joyce moved back to Newark with her children, Kathy (5) and Rick (2). In 1968, Joyce, her parents and children moved to Mansfield Township, NJ where they resided for many years. There, she worked as a Supply Chain Manager for Reichhold Chemical and later accepted a similar position at British Petroleum (BP) until retirement at age 65 in 1992. She enjoyed many activities and was a member of the Diamond Hill Flower Club, Hackettstown Swim Club and The Red Hat Society. Joyce’s summers were spent at the family’s lake house on beautiful Lake Hopatcong and all throughout the years, Joyce remained dedicated to being the best loving, single parent ever, to her children and then the best nana to her grandchildren.
