Rev. Dr. Joyce Wesley FARR [Parents] [scrapbook] 1 was born 2 on 20 Jul 1905 in Thatcher, Graham, Arizona, United States. He died 3 on 25 Jul 1980 in San Jose, Santa Clara, California, United States. Joyce married 4 Esther LYNDEN on 27 Nov 1930 in Campbell, Santa Clara, California, United States.

Born in the Territory of Arizona before it became a state. Graduate of College of the Pacific and Boston University School of Theology. Ordained, Methodist Episcopal Church (later the United Methodist Church). On Thanksgiving Day in 1930, married an auburn-haired Irish girl (Esther Lynden)who shared his zest for life. Died within days of celebrating 50 years in the ministry and his 75th birthday; just a few months before he and Esther would have celebrated their Golden Wedding Anniversary. World traveler, beloved pastor and counsellor, family man, loved by all who knew him for his great good humor, kind heart, intelligence and goodwill. He also had a beautiful singing voice, a passion for social justice and a terrific laugh. In his later years, he worked tirelessly for the California Council on Alcohol Problems and came up with the slogan: "Friends don't let friends drive drunk."

Esther LYNDEN [scrapbook] was born 1 on 7 Jun 1909 in San Francisco, San Francisco, California, United States. She died 2 on 14 Dec 1986 in Contra Costa, California, United States. Esther married 3 Rev. Dr. Joyce Wesley FARR on 27 Nov 1930 in Campbell, Santa Clara, California, United States.

Born on Pine Street to John Ross Lynden and Sarah Mary Lynden (Steele), both immigrants from Ireland. John Lynden was from County Roscommon and Sarah Mary Steele was from Armagh ... they met and married in San Francisco. Esther's childhood was spent in a big house in Burlingame; her father would take the train to his desk at Smith & Lynden Wholesale Grocers in San Francisco. The eerie sound of the night wind in the eucalyptus trees used to frighten her when she was little. Her father was something of a financial genius and did very well, both in his work and in the stock market, and eventually moved the family to Campbell (they owned what is now the Prune Yard shopping center when it was, in fact, a prune yard). Esther met and married Joyce Farr, a seminary student, and left the comforts of her father's home for the adventure of being a minister's wife and, eventually, the mother of five daughters. She was tailor-made for the job of minister's wife -- which, in those days, was really a job. And an important one. Her energy, sense of humor and inexhaustible interest in other people made her a "natural." This was a good thing, because Esther Lynden Farr was incapable of pretense. She lived her days with laughter, honesty and gusto, and when she left this life she was not afraid to go.

They had the following children.
