Joyce Chouinard

Joyce B. Chouinard, age 80 of St. Francis, MN formerly of Chisago City, MN passed away Sunday, August 7, 2022 in Baxter, MN.

Joyce was born in Mpls, MN on March 18, 1942 to parents Melvin and Etta Berger.  She was a 1960 graduate of Central High School in Mpls, MN.  Joyce was married to John Edstrom Sr. on December 30, 1962 in Mpls, MN, and they resided in Long Beach, CA where they welcomed two children, John and Julie.  

They moved back to MN in the early 70’s.  Once both children were in school full time, Joyce worked as a bank teller for Cedar State Bank and then Crosstown State Bank.  

In 1982 she married her husband of 34 years, Tom, now deceased, and joined him working at his business as office manager/corporate officer until her retirement in 1996.  During the years working with Tom at his business, they enjoyed many travel adventures including Italy, Spain, England, Hawaii, and many cruises including their final trip together cruising through the Panama Canal.  Joyce spent the last 20-plus winters in Yuma, AZ where she and Tom made many friends.  She loved to share memories of many fun times at Martinez Lake, Mexico and Laughlin, NV or just visiting the various tourist sites in Yuma.  

While in MN, Joyce and Tom spent the last 25 years living in the Chisago/Lindstrom area where they made many life-long friends.  Joyce loved to bake bread, spend time with family and watch old westerns on T.V.

Joyce is preceded in death by parents, Melvin and Etta Berger, and husband of 34 years, Thomas L. Chouinard Sr.

Joyce is survived by children John (Alissa) Edstrom, Julie Haben, Terri (Bill) Hoffman, Sherri Chouinard, Tim (Alysia) Chouinard, Tom (Suzie) Chouinard, Jr; 16 grandchildren and many more great grandchildren, friends and family.
