Her kids say she deserves it more than anyone.
A Parkersburg woman is named Mom of the Month.
Tyler Knowlton nominated his mom, Joyce for the award.
Joyce's daughter Allison was there, too for the big surprise Tuesday.
Tyler says his mom is a wonderful role model and she's always there for him and his sister.
Allison adds she's always supportive, even when it may be difficult.
Joyce says it all comes down to one thing.
"Patience. Patience, lots of patience and lots of love. Lots and lots. No matter what," says Joyce.
"Insurmountable patience from her for us. I know all the mistakes that we've made in life she's always been there right afterwards to help pick up the pieces," says Tyler.
Joyce received a beautiful bouquet from Crown Florals.
