Burley, Idaho - Joy Rae Clawson Tolman passed away Monday, Jan. 28, 2013, at her home in Burley.

Joy’s life was spent being a devoted daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. Family was her main focus in life. She often told us, “Family is so wonderful and aren’t children wonderful.” The highlight of Ed and Joy’s life is family.

Joy fought hard to the very end, always keeping her faith and doing all she could to advance the cause of good. The family would like to express our deep appreciation to the Burley Davita Dialysis staff for their kind and thoughtful care.
