Joyce Chambers

Joyce Chambers had traveled to other parts of the world (Europe) with her mother, Dorothy Jones, before.  This time, however, Chambers' mother stayed home to be near an ailing sister.  "It's going to be very painful for me now" Jones told the Washington Post after the Soviet abduction.  "To me she was a precious jewel."

Chambers worked as a machinist at general Motors in Detroit, where she lived.  She shared a love of traveling with her friend Min'imah Zarif and was part of a group of Zarif and friends mentioned in other vignettes (Zarif, Marie Culp, Eleanor Bissell, Frances Swift, and Hazel James.)

According to the Detroit Free Press, chambers called her mother before leaving.  "Mom, I miss you.  I want you to know I wish you could have gone."  Those were the last words Dorothy Jones heard from her daughter.
