About Joy Mae Arendell

As a single parent in the 1970s, Joy often worked two jobs at once in order to support her children. On Sept. 27, 1976, Joy married Gilbert LeRoy (Roy) Arendell. Joy worked as a nurse's aide, as well as at TRW, Dayco and Cornbelt Chemical prior to her retirement.

Joy was a member of the Evangelical Free Church in McCook, and she treasured the friendship and support shown to her. Joy was a loving and positive force in her children's lives, and always encouraged them to achieve as much as possible. Although Joy's life was hard at times, she kept her faith in God, her sense of humor and did the best she could. Joy delighted at the birth of each grandchild, and enjoyed spoiling them as much as she could. In 1995, Joy moved into Plum Creek Care Home in Lexington. In 1997, Joy moved to Mount Carmel Nursing Home in Kearney, where she lived until her death.

Joy grew up in Holbrook and attended Holbrook Public School graduating in 1947. In 1948 Joy completed training as an Airline Communications Stenographer in Omaha.
