Joyce Jana Gillund was born in Glencoe, Minnesota to Warren and Viola (Reilein) Plieseis. She was raised in Glencoe. After graduation she started working in the Glencoe Bakery and that is where she met the love of her life, Donald Gillund.

On September 18, 1949 Joyce was united in marriage to Don at the First Evangelical Lutheran Church in Glencoe, MN. They were blessed with two children, Ron and Sue. The family moved to Hendricks in 1958 where they owned and operated Don’s Bakery together for 32 years.

Upon retirement Joyce and Don enjoyed traveling throughout the country. Joyce was a lifetime caregiver for her mother, father and husband during their terminal illnesses. Joyce had unconditional love for others including special compassion for her fellow Nursing Home residents. Her most memorable moments were spent with friends and family and especially her grandchildren.

She was a member of Trinity Lutheran Church where she taught Sunday school, sang in the choir and was involved in Ladies Aid. Joyce was also involved in the Hendricks Hospital Auxiliary as well as the American Legion Ladies Auxiliary. Joyce passed away on Tuesday, September 10, 2019 at the Hendricks Nursing Home at the age of 89 years, 5 months and 8 days.
