Joyce Hess Obituary
Joyce A. Hess

 It is with great sorrow and sadness we announce the passing of Joyce A. Hess. She was born October 15, 1952 in Battle Creek, the daughter of Floyd and Violetta (Covert) France. We do not know or understand why someone so healthy and loved by so many could be taken this way. Joyce was the youngest of 3 children. She graduated from Battle Creek Academy and Rites Beauty Academy. She retired from Battle Creek Public Schools after 21 plus years of service as a custodian and licensed Fireman. Joyce enjoyed thrift store shopping, collecting knick knacks, and cooking for family and friends. Her favorite holidays were Christmas and Halloween. Joyce's greatest joy was spending time with her friends and family and watching her grandchildren grow. Rest in peace wife, mother and grandmother, we love and miss you.  

She is survived by her husband, Mitchell D. Hess; children, Rob (Lisa) Lancaster, Tim Lancaster, Jayme Lancaster, Melissa (Mike Greenman) Hess and Dawn (Mike Bauman) Hess; 9 grandchildren; and siblings, Ronald France and Judith (Gary) Reynolds.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Floyd France and Violetta Hill.

Visitation will be held Monday from 2:00-4:00 PM and from 6:00-8:00 PM at Bachman Hebble Funeral Service. Funeral services will be held Tuesday at 11:00 AM at Bachman Hebble Funeral Service with Pastor Jeff Worden of Hickory Corners Bible Church officiating. Entombment will be at the Memorial Park Cemetery in Battle Creek, MI. Memorial tributes may be made to Calhoun County Animal Shelter.
