Margaret Joyce teaching career 5 Oct 1961
By PEG O'BRIEN After 91 years in Janesville, more than 50 as a teacher in the elementary schools, Miss Margaret Joyce departed this week for Richmond, Va., where she will live with her niece, Mrs. Sarsfield Nott. Mrs. Nott was here several days dismantling Miss Joyce's apartment at 153 S. High St. Miss Joyce's nephew, Msgr. Sylvester Luby, Dubuque, Dubuque, Iowa, drove them to Chicago and from there they went by train to Virginia. At the turn of the century Miss Joyce was teaching at Adams School, her sister, Miss Minnie Joyce, was principal of Douglas School and Miss Agnes Joyce, who became Mrs. D. J. Luby, was Grant School principal. Miss Margaret also taught at Jefferson School and later was principal at Webster and Garfield Schools, rounding out her career as teacher of the opportunity room at Garfield. Mr. and Mrs. John McDowell, Atlanta, Ga., returned Wednesday after four days visit with his mother, Mrs. Robert McDowell, who is now residing at Dawson Nursing Home. A former resident "Jack" McDowell left Janesville about 35 years ago.
