The acquaintance blossomed into a romance, and in 1948, Joy married the love of her life, A.J. Manofsky. Over the course of their 68 year marriage, as A.J. advanced his career with Southern Pacific, the couple lived in several towns across Texas and Louisiana. Joy was a dedicated homemaker who exceled at cooking, baking, sewing, and creating a beautiful home. After A.J.'s retirement, Joy and he enjoyed many happy years, traveling and spending time with their family.
