Joyce lived with her husband, Jim, and their two children ages four and seven on Riverdale Drive. They spent the evening of June 9 in their vehicle after evacuating their home. The next day they walked to where their home was located only to find it gone. Joyce's four-year-old daughter played "flood" the entire summer and her son still suffers.
