Dare to Dream


When Joyce found out that the Gaither Vocal Band would be coming to the Civic Center to perform, she was thrilled! Joyce, along with her husband and her son, used to listen to them sing gospel music every night on the television.


Jo is known for her legacy at Central College. Not only is she one of five generations of women to attend school there—but she was also a member of the cheerleading team and Homecoming Queen in 1952!


Charming always wanted to take a ride on a helicopter. She had a brother in the Navy who flew them and Charming and her late husband had plans that fell through at one point. Charming mentioned her dream to Jessica one day at Glenwood Place Assisted Living and the wheels got in motion to make it happen. A ride was set up through Iowa Helicopter and Charming, her daughter Judy and son-in-law Mike took a 30 minute flight around Des Moines.
