Joy’s class selected her as their Homecoming Queen! Joy will always be remembered for her great sense of humor!  After graduation from high school, she was immediately employed by Northwestern Bell Telephone. Although the company went through several name changes her employment lasted for more than 40 years. Joy was married to Tim Dockter on July 11, 1970, at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Moorhead, Minnesota. Joy and Tim lived in Fargo and West Fargo until they moved to Barnesville, Minnesota in the fall of 1977, when they became members of Assumption Catholic Church. While in Barnesville, they raised a daughter, Crystal, and son, Christopher.

Joy is survived by her husband, Tim; daughter Crystal and her husband, Brian and their children, Logan, Tegan, and Regan Batey; son Christopher and his wife, Melanie, and their children, Jack, Fiona, and Asher Dockter. Joy is also survived by brothers, Joe, Jay, James, Jeff, and Jan, and sisters, Julie, Janet, Jennifer, and Jill.

Joy was preceded in death by her parents, Joe A. Hough and Rhoda (Lemke) Hough.

May Joy’s soul and all the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
