Mary Krillich Joyce
There are reports around town that Mary Joyce had died. Mary has been called the mother of Ruston. She served on the town council for decades and even ran for mayor before there were many women in elected office. Mary's father and uncle were one of the first residents in Ruston. The community center is named in her honor.
I will confirm more details tomorrow.
