We lost a beautiful, bright light on March 17, 2018 when our friend Joy fell in a tragic climbing accident. Fearless and courageous, she loved life and lived it fiercely, always chasing adventure and following her . She was an amazing human being - an extremely talented violinist, an accomplished engineer, and a fervent outdoor adventurist. On top of all that and more importantly, she was a caring daughter, a loving fiancée, an affectionate sister, and a genuine friend. She was kind, compassionate, generous, humble, funny - the epitome of her name, she was our true, pure JOY.
This GoFundMe account has been set up to help Joy's family and fiancé, Michael, with the funeral expenses.
Joy's light continues to shine brightly through all of the hearts she's touched. We hope you can share that light through any contribution. Big or small, anything would be very much appreciated.
We love you, Joy.
