Audrey "Joyce" Quiver-Romero ~ Cikala Waste Win
Audrey "Joyce" Quiver-Romero, Cikala Waste Win, was born February 9, 1940, in Pine Ridge, SD. Joyce left this world to be with her family that preceded her in death on July 15, 2007. Joyce passed away at her residence, the Seven Arrow Ranch on Quiver Hill.
Meeting and guiding her home was her mother Lavina Richards-Quiver, her father Bert Quiver, her sisters Fern Fast Wolf and Twila Quiver. Also, brothers Bertie, Willard and Delane Quiver.
Joyce was a hard working woman who raised eight children of her own, and several of her family members. Joyce extended her home to all in need. Her love of horses was known to all who knew her or entered her home. Joyce grew up on Quiver Hill as a child and spent her life coming home. Joyce worked many professions from cleaning, hair dressing, cooking, teaching and managing the Wanblee Senior Citizen Meal Program. Joyce had many dreams, all mostly involving horses. She purchased land from her father on Quiver Hill and made her home there. She had her own home built and raised quarter horses and horses of her own liking.
