Joyce was born and raised in Huntington, NY, Long Island. After graduating high school she worked at the American Can Company, and met her future husband, Bob Dannecker, at a roller skating rink. The two shared a love of the outdoors and travel. Joyce and Bob joined the Southern Tier Bicycle Club in the 1980s and enriched their social lives and health with many cycling trips near and far. In 1993 they biked across the United States from Oregon to New Jersey. After Bob's passing in 2009, Joyce continued biking and began hiking with the Triple Cities Hiking Club.
