Joyce spent her childhood years in South Gate, Lynwood, and Inglewood, California. She was a 1950 graduate of Fremont High School where she enjoyed singing in the Glee Club, and working in the local theater. She had a happy childhood with her family, her cousins and friends. After high school she took some business classes at Occidental College and enjoyed going dancing at the Coconut Grove with Shirley and her friends.

Joyce met Frank while he and his brother were visiting Joyce's aunt Nita. He always said that he knew when he saw her that he was going to marry her. Joyce and Frank met on July 4th 1953 and were married on March 13th 1954. They celebrated 69 years together this year. They had 6 children together; Annette Carrozzo, Gregg Zembik, Anthony Zembik, David Zembik, Teresa Miller and Yvonne Gill. She was a loving "Grandma" to 14 grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren.

She was a Room Mother at St. Emydius Catholic School and a Cub Scout leader, too. During her life she enjoyed quilting, sewing, reading and participating in a garden club and community produce co-op group.
After retirement Joyce and Frank traveled to many countries throughout the world and enjoyed collecting treasures from their many trips.
