I just want to thank all of you. The recognition goes all to my mother-in-law Joye. I wanted to make you all aware that as far as I know the last of the original Wonder Woman writers that worked directly with Dr. Marston has passed. Joye did not relish the limelight and was astonished by the recognition her contributions made. She is the reason I went back to collecting comic books like I did when I was much younger.

You can find information about her and her contributions at the Smithsonian Institute's Dibner Library. She was quite the person like no other I have ever met and a trip to the Dibner can certainly open your eyes to the force she was and well remain in the Women's Right movement, and in (our hobby) comic book industry and all that it has produced.

Joye April 4th 1924 to April 5th 2021

Thank you again,

Blessing to all of you and to her family !

Rick (son-in-law)

97 birthdays and 11 decades of living. Doing something she loved and leaving a mark on the world. Would that we could all be so fortunate.

Most arent aware of her ties to womens rights and so forth or that Olive Byrne the woman who served as the real life inspiration for wonder woman was the nice of Margaret Sanger the woman who opened the first birth control clinic in the united states.

Joye walked among some true giants between Marston, olive byrne, and the rest of the supporting cast. To have seen and known the secrets she knew and kept must be a truly amazing situation.

So sad for her loss, but so glad to have known her story and shared with a few that I am friends with
