Joni lived much of her childhood in Mankato, KS, but moved to Tama-Toledo before entering 8th grade. After high school, she moved to Omaha,NE, attended Patricia Stevens Business College following in her sister's footsteps and worked at Mutual of Omaha for nine years. She moved to Sandstone, MN to be closer to her parents when her oldest son, Pierce, was quite young and she worked in the federal prison there. When her middle son, Ethan, was in elementary school, they moved to Tipton, IN until all three kids graduated from high school. In addition to her career, she was a caring and devoted mother to her three children. A year and a half ago she moved back to Toledo when she became reacquainted with Larry from their high school days.
