Joyce Johnson To Serve As Christmas Parade Marshal


Joyce Johnson Joyce Johnson Cloverdale Main Street is proud to announce that Joyce Johnson will serve as their 2012 Parade Marshal of the Christmas parade that is scheduled for Saturday, December 1, at 1:00 p.m. Mrs. Johnson is well-known and well loved throughout the Cloverdale community. She was owner of the Cloverdale Pizza Niche for thirty-one years before retiring to enjoy a life full of adventure and travel. Joyce had made her mark in the community as a business leader and community advocate. She served many years on the Board of Cloverdale Main Street. She received the Civic Award in 2009, given by the Cloverdale Lions Club. A woman of profound faith, Mrs. Johnson has been very active in her church, St. Paul the Apostle Catholic Church. Even though the word ‘retirement’ has been used after selling her business, Joyce has been anything and ev- erything but ‘retired’. She and her husband, Dave, bought a trawler and made the Great Loop, traveling from Florida, along the intracoastal water ways of the eastern coast, then a stretch of the Atlantic to the Hudson River, Erie Canal crossing Lake Ontario into Canada, navigated the Great Lakes and then through the river system to the Gulf before returning to their home base in Florida. That aside, they traveled to Europe only to return to ‘house sit’ at Cape Cod. Their bucket list is not complete yet. Next, they will travel the West in an RV.

Active, smart, witty, compassionate, the list of adjectives are long for Joyce. She is a friend at a first meeting. An individual whose first thought is always to make things better.

Joyce and Dave Johnson are the parents to six children; grandparents to thirteen; great-grandparents to one. And while that sounds ‘retired’.... they aren’t. Cloverdale Main Street congratulates Joyce Johnson on being a positive impact on the Cloverdale community and is proud to have her as their Parade Marshal.
