Joyce H. Atkinson, 89, of Great Falls, passed away on Saturday, November 7, 2020.

Joyce was born on June 17, 1931, in Great Falls to Cecil and Anna Cox. She received her education in Great Falls. The majority of her life she worked as a bookkeeper. First for Graham Ross, then for Thomas Dean, and Hoskins, and finally at the Elk’s Club for Joe Tropila. For a few years, Joyce worked at the State Grain Lab before retiring. After she retired, she worked part time for Advanced Litho where her son, Andrew was employed.

She met and later married Larry Atkinson on January 8, 1950, and they had a son, Andrew. Larry passed on August 5, 1978.

Joyce was preceded in death by her husband and parents.
