STEVENS POINT – Ascension St. Michael’s Hospital’s longest serving volunteer Joyce Boyden was surprised by fellow volunteers and friends with a fire truck parade by the Stevens Point Fire Department May 18 to celebrate her 90th birthday.

“Joyce truly loves the people she volunteers with and is thankful for the opportunity to volunteer with such great individuals,” said Susan Motz, volunteer and guest services coordinator, Ascension St. Michael’s Hospital, in a news release.

Boyden also says that she enjoyed being one year younger than her husband Ed, but only for a day, as on May 19 he celebrated his 92nd birthday.

Joyce has been a volunteer with Ascension St. Michael’s since 1983 and continues to volunteer weekly in the patient care escort department.

“Congratulations, Joyce, and thank you for all that you do for Ascension St. Michael’s Hospital,” Motz said.
