Joyce Joan Roberts (Hoemig) Martin passed away quietly the twenty second of February 2013. She was born on the first of August, 1931 In Huntington, Indiana.
She is survived by her husband, Dr. Kenneth Martin; daughter, Jennifer Merkel; son, Greg Hoemig; step-children: Judie Barborka, Randall Martin and Karen Martin; brother, Fred Roberts; and sister, Patricia Reisterer. She has 10 grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren. Preceding her in death were her parents, Donald and Stella Roberts, brother Richard Roberts and son Jeffery Charles Hoemig.
Joyce graduated from Indiana University with a degree in Marketing Display and Music. Her music provided great pleasure for many. She was a soloist with many groups and was in demand for weddings and funerals. She was in shows wherever she lived; Fiascos (musical productions) in Littleton, Irving Berlin and other variety shows in Wyoming and singing with the Westernaires and West Valley Chorale in Sun City West. She was always actively involved with her church choirs. Joyce also sang with the St. John's Cathedral chorus, the La Scalla Singers and the Dicken's Carolers.
Joyce was an accomplished artist both in the oil and watercolor medium. Her paintings were very popular and she sold hundreds of paintings over the years.
She loved everything about living on this earth. Her artistry mentioned above, entertaining family and friends, her church life, quiet family life and most of all, her husband, Ken. Joyce was a wonderful person. She will be missed by all. Thank you, God, for releasing her from her terrible disease and taking her back home to be with you.
A memorial service will be held in Sun City at the American Lutheran Church 17200 N. Del Webb Blvd. on Tuesday, March 5th at 11:00 A.M. with a light lunch following the service in the Fellowship Hall. In lieu of flowers, we ask that donations be made to the American Lutheran Church in Sun City.
