Joyce C. Vold
Joyce C. Vold passed away on Sunday, April 9, 2017 with the company of her loving family. She was born July 11, 1932 in Rice Lake to Leslie and Marie (Tobin) Stilley. Joyce left school and home to begin working at a young age, and worked well into her 70s, all the while raising her children mostly on her own. Joyce was an accomplished cook and baker, talented gardener and incredible seamstress. She was independent, outspoken and self-sufficient, and produced many of life’s necessities on her own, including canned goods. Joyce enjoyed bird watching and her flower gardens, but her time was best spent with her precious grandchildren.
She is survived by her children, Gayle Longseth of Turtle Lake, Mary (Duane) Stuntz of Turtle Lake, Lisa Jennrich of Milltown, Susan Vold (Eric Germain) of Dresser, Mark (Shandra) Vold of Amery and Nichole (Brian) Morris of Turtle Lake; her special niece, Linda Conner of Barron; 12 grandchildren, Crystal, Kyle, Markayla, Ryan, Lucas, Cassandra, Nic, Ashley, Tanner, Delaney, James and Dustin; seven great grandchildren, Destiny, Kaiah, Oliver, Juniper, Ember, Carter, Serenity, and one on the way and nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
Joyce was preceded in death by many siblings; her son, Bradley; twins: Michael and Michelle, and a great grandson, Zeke.
