Joyce Ann Schleeter was born in the upper Mississippi River town of Lansing, Iowa on March 15, 1934, a daughter of the late Charles and Luanna Hartman. Surrounded with love from her three children, she went peacefully home April 25, 2013.
Known to her Lansing family as Noonie, Joyce married the love of her life, Robert Schleeter, in 1952 and soon relocated to the Des Moines area. She enjoyed life in many different ways, but it was her love for family and friends that best define her, beginning with the unconditional love for her children and grandchildren. She cheered for every adventure and endeavor of the next generation and the generation after that. Many years after retirement, Joyce continued to meet with friends from her days in advertising. She had a life-long love of fishing and was a devoted fan of the Cubs, win or lose. She loved traveling to California to see her sons and grandkids. She loved spending time with her best friend, her daughter Rebecca. She loved her life and gave never-ending support and happiness to others.
Joyce's memory is celebrated by her children, known to her as Bobby, Becky and Pat; grandchildren, Casey, Ryan, Natalie and Andrew; her beloved Aunt Susie; many special cousins, nieces, nephews and in-laws; as well as many dear friends from all walks of life. She was preceded in death by her parents, husband, Bob; daughter, Jill; and sister, Pat.
