Joy Ladelle Straus, of Medford, Ore., passed away Thursday, August 29, 2013. She leaves behind her loving husband, Richard, of 33 years; her sons, Devin and Darin; daughter, Denise; stepchildren, Jackie, Jani, Kim, and Rick; and her grandson, Rylan.
Joy was born in Wheatland, Calif., on July 15, 1931, fifteen minutes ahead of her twin sister, Joyce. She loved her yard and garden, it still looks beautiful. She and Richard had some wonderful times together at the Oregon coast, camping at the lake and spending their winter months in Yuma, Ariz., with all their snowbird friends.
She will be truly missed for the rest of time. Sleep well Mom. We love you!
