Biography* Edwin Irving wrote on 21 Jun 2010: "My mother was a nurse. A doctor my Mother worked with wanted to send her to Medical School but for whatever reason she declined. Not sure what stage of her life this was.

Also, she was married to (Everette?) Brown and had my older sister Charlotte Joyce Brown Irving Pace. He died before she was born so she never knew her biological father and never claimed him to be her father.

My Mother later married my Father Emile Macret Irving, a pharmacist. I believe they met at Charity Hospital in New Orleans.

They had a set of triplets and two sets of twins. All died but me and my twin sister, Mildred Allain Irving Migliore. Joyce was always our older sister and she and my sister and I never knew of her biological father until she joined the Air Force at age 18 where she later married Capt. James Pace. Both Joyce and Jim are deceased.9
