Jody originally from Dracut, Ma, met her husband George Bachelder in New Ipswich, NH. Where they settled down and had two children together. The house was often filled with laughter and wise inside jokes amongst the family. Jody always knew how to make her family laugh and made sure they were loved. She had an infectious laugh and deeply cared for her children and grandchildren. She would spend her days tending to a large beautiful garden that would later be a place of memories for her grandchildren.

Joyce is lovingly remembered by her husband, George Bachelder, her two children Sarah (Bachelder) Coutu and Seth Bachelder, her two grandchildren Genevieve Coutu and Paisley Bachelder, her mother Barbara (Hammond) Nutter, her father Ronald Martin, her sister Melody (Martin) Gordon, brother Shawn Martin, also many aunts, uncles, cousins and their families.
