Athens StoryCorps: Pat Priest and Mildred Jean Joyner


For many people, mothers are some of the strongest women they know, and this strength is definitely apparent in this conversation.

Dr. Patricia Priest talks to her spirited mother Mildred Jean Joyner about what life was like for her raising children after her husband’s passing and working in a field dominated by men.

StoryCorps Athens stories were recorded locally at the StoryCorps mobile booth at the Athens-Clarke County Library in the fall of 2018. StoryCorps is part of a national initiative to record and preserve the stories of everyday people.
