In Coronation, Joey met the love of her life, Wes Sieger and was married to him on July 28, 1973. The couple took up residency on the Sieger family farm, northeast of Coronation.
On their second wedding anniversary, July 28, 1975, they were blessed with the birth of their oldest daughter, Misty.
The family continued growing with the arrival of Robyn on May 12, 1978; Logan on March 4, 1982 and Ashley on Feb. 20, 1984.
Joey was a hardworking, dedicated employee over the years at Food Town, L & C Bookkeeping, Kena Hardware and most recently in food services at the Coronation Hospital.
She volunteered her time to numerous causes and organizations over the years. Joey was a dedicated Talbot Homemaker and enjoyed helping deliver Meals On Wheels.
Most of all, Joey was a caring and nurturing wife, mother, grandmother, sister, sister-in-law, aunt and devoted friend.
She loved hanging out with her children, her 13 grandchildren and her one great-grandchild.
