The family of Joyce Gould is sharing this remembrance with the community:
Joyce Gould, age 94, passed away on November 22, 2016, at her home in West Seattle.
She is survived by her two children, David Gould and Janet Walters; spouses Peggy Cummings and John Walters respectively; grandchildren Eric Gould and spouse Dwight Gaut, Stacie Worden and spouse Seth Worden, and Ty Walters; and great-grandchild Danielle Miller.
Joyce was born in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin, and grew up in the states of Wisconsin, Michigan, and New York. Living in Norwich, New York, she married James Gould, her husband for the next 69 years, and after World War II moved to Seattle for economic and educational opportunities — a better life and future for themselves and their family. She worked at a variety of jobs, including several years on the Washington State Ferry system. Along the way, she helped her husband remodel several homes, and they built the home they lived in for the remaining 36 years of her life.
Funeral services will be held later in December at Tahoma National Cemetery. Remembrances may be made to a charity of your choice in her memory. Arrangements by Howden-Kennedy Funeral Home. Share your memories of Joyce here.
