Joyce Irene (Conner) Michel Obituary
Joyce Irene (Conner) Michel, age 65, of Bluffton, Ohio, passed away Monday morning, February 27, 2012, while under Hospice Care, in St. Rita's Medical Center in Lima, Ohio. Born January 12, 1947, in Akron, she was preceded in death by her parents, William and Cecelia Inez Conner; stepfather, Roy Benway; and sisters, Nancy Jean Conner and Beth Ann Adkins. Joyce lived most of her life in the Akron area and graduated from St. Mary's High School in 1965. In recent years, she'd resided with her son in Alliance, and her daughter in Bluffton. She worked as an insurance agent for almost 40 years, providing not only service but, for many of her customers, friendship.

Joyce was an accomplished seamstress and craft hobbyist, and some of her greatest joys came in creating gifts for her family and loved ones.

Joyce is survived by her children, Daniel and Nancy Michel; grandchildren, Daniel and David Amsden-Michel; siblings Richard (Shirley) Conner, Nan (Dick) Neill, Thomas (Karen) Conner, Barbara (Tim) Brown, Susan (Tim) Grieser, and Karen (Frank) DeCarlo; stepsisters, Cathy Martini and Cindy Huhn; and numerous nieces, nephews, grand-nieces and grand-nephews.

Calling hours will be Thursday, March 1 from 4 to 8 p.m., at Dunn-Quigley Funeral Home (811 Grant St.). Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 10:30 a.m. Friday at Immaculate Conception Catholic Church (2100 16th St. SW, in Akron). Donations can be made to St. Rita's Hospice of Lima, Ohio.

Akron, 330-253-8121
