(Editorâ€™s note: This piece is one in a series of â€śFamiliar Faces Fridayâ€ť features to be written by Spirit reporter Destiny Pifer. The point of the project will be to highlight a member of the community who may be recognizable to many and tell his or her story. Todayâ€™s familiar face is Joyce Farcus.)
PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” Joyce Farcus is a familiar face. You may recognize her as the owner of Maryâ€™s Place Restaurant, or perhaps you have seen her around the community.
Born and raised in Punxsy, Farcus is a 1974 graduate of Punxsutawney Area High School.
Though she had dreamed about being a teacher, fate led her in a different direction.
