I am so sorry to hear about this.  Joyce was a role model for me from my first days in this industry, and she will be sorely missed.

She enjoyed telling this story about that: someone wrote to Jon asking "who is the RFC Editor? Is that you, or Joyce?", to which he responded "Yes". She championed the FYI series of RFCs, and wrote several of them. One example is the documentation of the Morris Worm, an early attack, in RFC 1135. She is listed as an author or co-author (often with Jon) of 26 RFCs.
