Joy (Edwards) Schantz was born in Phoenix, Arizona, and loves its western lore and appeal. She graduated from Carl Hayden H.S. in Phoenix, and attended Phoenix College, Glendale Community College, and Lamson Business College.

Joy retired as an administrative secretary from the Arizona Game and Fish Department in 1998, then continued working part-time there until 2005.

Joy's husband, Merv taught physical education, social studies, history, and coached in the Cartwright School District until retiring from Desert Sands Jr. H.S. in 1993.

Joy and Merv raised three sons and two daughters (a "Brady Bunch"), and now enjoy their eight wonderful grandchildren. They travel to historic destinations, relishing the history and beauty that each state uniquely offers.
