Every summer Joyce was at the beach with all the other mothers, watching their children splash through swimming lessons and playing in the sand and water. As the family grew, an annual summer tradition of vacationing began in different places around the country. Everyone got packed into the car and away they went. It was a wonderful experience seeing all the different sights for the first time together as a family. This annual vacation continued after the children were gone from home, with Joyce and Charlie enjoying many road trips and new adventures. There was always fresh baking in the Glasgow household and Joyce was often trying out new recipes to change up what she sent to the many events and organizations she was involved in. She always made sure that fresh baked goodies were in the house, even after the children were gone. Once she knew someone was coming home, a favourite cake or cookies would be waiting for them. At Christmas she sent care packages to her children so they could have a tin of shortbread for the holidays. Joyce was the secretary at Tanners Crossing School for almost 25 years and retirement gave her time to become more involved in the community, enjoy her gardens and home.
