When I came to town a callow general assignment reporter in 1973, I knew her as Joy Greer. How wonderful it was to have a spokesman for a major institution -- First National Bank -- whose number was in the book, who returned calls at any hour no matter how silly the inquiry and did so with kindness and gentleness. And she had a much larger and significant life beyond her job.
Joy Lancaster Greer Roberts died today at 75. Here's her obituary. (Arrangements are still to come, you'll notice.) Her likes are always missed.
UPDATE: There will be visitation at the Memorial Gardens chapel in Sheridan from 6 to 8 p.m. Monday at the funeral home. Funeral will be at 10 a.m. Tuesday at Memorial Gardens.
