Obituary: Joyce Mae (Dunahoo) Lien

Posted: Updated:

Our Mother, Grandma, Niece, Cousin, and Friend is now at peace.  Joyce Mae (Dunahoo) Lien passed peacefully on July 11, 2017, at Gallatin Rest Home in Bozeman, MT. 

Mom was born on September 2, 1947, to Sonny and Joyce Dunahoo in Bozeman.  She was their whole world and we are so thankful knowing they are all reunited! 

Mom attended elementary school in the Valley and graduated from Belgrade in 1967.  Mom was very involved in Rainbow Girls and Job’s Daughters, earning the title of Honorary Queen in 1966.  Following graduation, Mom worked at the 320 Ranch as a nanny to Carrie, daughter of Jimmy and Patty Goodrich, who operated the 320 from 1959 to 1987.  It was while working at the 320 she met Raymond Lien who worked at the neighboring Crail Ranch.  Mom and Dad married in 1970.  They welcomed their daughter, Brenda, in 1973 and their son, Eric, in 1975.  Unfortunately, their paths parted in 1987, and it is then that Mom returned to the Valley she always loved – The Gallatin Valley. 

Mom spent many years as a caregiver and ticket taker at Montana State University. 

Mom was preceded in death by her father in 1968 and her mother in 2002.  She is survived by myself, daughter, Brenda (Lon) Huckert and grandsons, Carson and Jaxson of Bozeman; and son, Eric (Julie) Lien, granddaughter, Kendra, and grandson, Timmy; many, many cousins, friends, and her dearest aunt and uncle, Joe and Janelle Barnett of Belgrade.

The family would like to deeply thank Gallatin Rest Home and Hospice at Bozeman Health for their support, care, and love of Mom in the final stages of her life. 

Memorials in Joyce’s name may be made to Gallatin Rest Home, 1221 Durston Rd., Bozeman, MT 59715 or Bozeman Health Foundation (memo line: Hospice), 931 Highland Blvd., Ste. 3200, Bozeman, MT 59715.

A Celebration of Life will be held Thursday, August 3, 2017, at 11:30 a.m. at the First Lutheran Church by Pastor Sam Grayl.
