Joslyn grew up in Kansas City, Missouri with her two brothers and three sisters. She graduated from South East High School in Kansas City, Missouri in 1972. After high school, Joslyn attended Penn Valley Community College with aspirations to become a Courthouse Stenographer. While attending college, she also found employment with the Social Security Department. From there, she then transferred to the U.S. Postal Service where she retired after 25 years. Throughout Joslyn’s career, she proudly served in multiple positions which increased her responsibilities. In addition to her career, she was blessed with three children and married the love of her life, Wallis Ivory, Jr. They were happily married for 17 years.
