Joyce Grinstead and her husband Larry.

Sedalia Business Women presented the 2023 – 2024 Woman of the Year to Joyce Grinstead at the November 2, 2023, Public Relations Dinner. Former Women of the Year chose Joyce for this honor due to her contributions to the Club and to the community.

Joyce enjoys working in the background and helps with various projects and events. She donates handcrafted jewelry to the SBW’s annual silent auction and paddle auction to benefit scholarships. She has served SBW by being on the telephone committee for three years and as chair of the music committee 2017-18. The music committee is in charge of the installation of officers. Joyce has designed and printed the monthly programs for the past eight years.

As a member of the SBW board, Joyce is a mentor to new board members, and steps up to provide assistance to anyone who needs a helping hand.

Joyce is a member of the Bothwell Regional Health Center Auxiliary and serves on the board as a nominations chair. She volunteers at the BRHC gift shop and helps the Human Resources Department. She has volunteered 2,600 hours at the hospital over the past twelve years! Joyce also volunteers for the Central Missouri Coin Club, the Sedville Crazy Quilters, the Mozarkite Society, and the Sedalia Circle Daughters of Isabella No. 310. She uses her talent as a seamstress to make baby bonnets for newborns at BRHC and table runners and quilts for Central Missouri Long Arm Club.

Before joining SBW, she had been a 25 plus member of American Business Women until that group disbanded. Joyce is an active member of Sedalia Business Women and says she especially enjoys the camaraderie of the SBW members.

Congratulations, Joyce, on the Woman of the Year Award, and thank you for your service to SBW and the community.
