   Joyce Adeline Hartman was born July 23, 1948 to Daniel and Adeline 0. (Dallman) Hartman, in Jamestown, North Dakota. They lived on a farm NW of Edgeley, then in Jamestown before making their home in Edgeley until Joyce was a teenager. The family moved to Portland, ND. Joyce moved to Grand Forks where she met Gary Lee Goldsmith, US Air Force whom she married in 1966 in Portland, ND. They lived in several areas around the base, including on a farm and in Hatton. While Gary was deployed in Vietnam, Joyce and their son Gary Lee Jr. lived in Maryland near the Goldsmith family. Later all three returned to North Dakota where Dale Edward joined the family, living for a time in Portland, Glyndon, Bismarck and Mandan. The family returned to Maryland, living in Oxon Hill and Brandywine, for several years. Then the family moved to Wyoming where Big Gary passed away. Joyce and the boys moved to Jamestown then to Fargo and West Fargo where she remained until her death.
