A well-known local businesswoman has died.

Joyce Newton helped found Hoosier Racing Tires with her husband back in 1957.

It's grown into one of the largest producers of racing tires in the world.

Bob and Joyce Newton also gave back to the community in many ways including Newton Park in Lakeville.

Bob died in 2012.

The family sold Hoosier Racing Tire in 2016.

Joyce was 85-years-old.
