She graduated from Ponca City High School in 1971. Joy married Stan Villines and to this union came two children, a daughter Kelli Dawn Waggerman and a son Kory Lee Villines.
Joy was a homemaker, worked at Conoco, and later managed a Triple T. She resided most of her life in Ponca City, briefly living in Stillwater before retiring to Ponca City. Joy married Richard Kassen on October 13, 2014. Photography, reading, gardening, interior decorating, and cooking were some of her favorite hobbies. She received a lot of satisfaction spending time with her granddaughter Madi.
Joy was always thinking of others and card giving was an expression of her kindness. She always had a soft place, in her heart, for the elderly.
As an avid OU fan she had the audacity to "sport" Sooner attire at a job on the OSU campus. Her family loved her dearly and she will be greatly missed by family and friends.
