Died: Friday, January 18, 2019
Joyce Ann Kalbfleisch, 84, of Lapeer, went to be with her Lord Friday, January 18, 2019.
Joyce was born May 18, 1934 in Imlay City, Michigan to Ole and Annie (Hudson) Anderson. Joyce married William Carl Kalbfleisch on June 30, 1951 at the First Baptist Church of Pontiac. She was a loving homemaker in every sense of the word – she was a very dedicated wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother. Joyce attended the Baptist Church of Lapeer. She loved to travel with her husband Bill. Joyce lived at Brookhaven AFC since December 2009 – she was often seen helping other residents if staff wasn’t available. Joyce’s family wanted to thank everyone at Brookhaven for their tender loving care – in particular Cathie Wilson who is the greatest caregiver ever.
Joyce is survived by her children, William (Phyllis) Kalbfleisch of Columbiaville, Randall Kalbfleisch of Johnson City, TN, Patricia (Dale) Coulter of Columbiaville, Debra (Paul) Brown of Lapeer and Kathryn (Keith) Reynolds of Lapeer; twelve grandchildren; and 21 great-grandchildren.
Joyce was preceded in death by her dear husband of 58 years, William Kalbfleisch; son-in-law, Randy Russell; brother, Ron Anderson; sister, Ila Morgan; many step siblings and her parents.
Funeral services were held Tuesday, January 22, 2019 at Muir Brothers Funeral Home, Lapeer. Pastor David Hill officiated. Burial immediately followed at Mt. Hope Cemetery, Lapeer.
