Joski, Alyssa (Kaminski)
Alyssa Rae (Kaminski) Joski, 31, Denmark, took the hand of an angel following the joyous birth of her long awaited beautiful baby boy, Jace Robert, on July 11, 2014. She was born November 26, 1982, to Robert "Bob" and Denise (Melotte) Kaminski. Alyssa graduated from Denmark High School with the Class of 2001 and from UW-Oshkosh with a Bachelor of Arts Degree with an emphasis in Psychology. She has been employed at Humana since her graduation, and made many wonderful friends there.
In June of 2006, Alyssa met the love of her life, Mark Joski, on the docks of the Holiday Inn while attending Bayfest. The couple was married October 13, 2012. She was the #1 fan and most avid supporter of the #68 race car and will be missed by the entire IMCA community at the local tracks.
In September 2013, Alyssa and Mark purchased a house in the Denmark area. Their new home was their pride and joy. Alyssa and her mom spent the last nine months painting and decorating her beautiful home. She particularly enjoyed preparing the nursery as she eagerly awaited the new baby's arrival.
Alyssa shared her bubbly personality, her mischievous wit, her beautiful smile and the cutest giggle with everyone she met. She enjoyed family gatherings, boating, playing volleyball, and attending her cousins' sporting events. She was very organized and her ducks were always in a row. Alyssa is deeply loved and will always be remembered.

Words can't express the way I feel today. I loved my wife Alyssa Rae Joski to the end of the world and back. It is just amazing how all our family and friends are here to support me at this time. I cannot express enough to everyone how much all the posts, text messages, and private messages mean to me and our families. I am truly blessed to know such terrific people. Mark
