Joyce Adeline Brown was born in Marshfield July 20, 1925, where she lived with her parents Mr. and Mrs. Roy Brown until in 1928 when they moved to Salem, Indiana. In 1925 at the time of her father’s death, they moved back to Marshfield, where on Saturday, September 19, 1936, she was killed by a truck driven by Thomas Socha of Edgar, Wis., in front of her home at 1100 N. Central Avenue. Her twin sister Jane was with her at the time of her death.
Funeral services were conducted Tuesday afternoon September 22 at the home on N. Central Avenue and at Trinity English Lutheran Church with Rev. C. A. Kipps conducting the rites. Burial was made in Hill Side Cemetery.
