Joyce Carol Aiken Olson Keeler, 81, of Falconer, died on Monday March 23, 2020, at Heritage Green Nursing Home after a long illness.Joyce was born on April 14, 1938 in Jamestown, New York, and was the daughter of Warren J and Helen Bartlett Aiken. Joyce was married to Roger (Beady) Olson from May 1956 until her death in 1977. Together they had two children: Scott and Todd. Joyce has often commented on how much she loved being a mom and a grandmother and more recently has become a great grandmother. She was happy.
Joyce loved being a mom so much that when her children had grown up she continued to invest in those in her neighborhood with many who called her mother and grandmother.
Several years after the death of her first husband, she married her second husband, Robert Keeler in March 1983 and they spent many happy years together until her death in 2001.
Joyce liked to connect with people. She was very active in her community and took very good care of those who were sick and those who were celebrating milestones. We believe that many people in your community have received a greeting card from you at one time or another.
Joyce was a graduate of Falconer Central High School. She worked at the Mutest Insurance Company in Jamestown at the beginning of her career and then worked as a secretary at the United Methodist Church of the Falconer. She ended her career as a teacher aide at Harvey C. Fenner Elementary School, where she was able to love and encourage children.
