During about 17 years of involvement with the Alcorn County Genealogical Society, Joyce DuQuette has helped put people in touch with their roots. “I enjoy finding people’s ancestors and the joy they find in it,” she said. DuQuette volunteers to staff the society’s courthouse office one day a week. She is also a volunteer with the hospital auxiliary. Other interests of the Corinth native are gardening, traveling and watching Corinth basketball games. She is the mother of three — Allison Fett, Danny Burcham and Merry Overholt — and a member of Shiloh Baptist Church.
