Joyce was born on May 21, 1941, to the late Sylvia and Raymond Riley. She married John Raymond Kaltenbaugh Sep 3, 1957. She retired from Garvin Industries in 2007 and then took to the road.

She relished her role as Mom, Gram, Grammy, and Big MeeMaw. Spending time with the youngest of her extended family was her favorite pass time. She was also a regular at Prime Timers and could often be found having lunch with friends and family all referred to as "the girls". She also loved time spent around the fire at the family camp.
