Joyce Maureen Kossick Obituary
Kossick, Joyce Maureen
Joyce passed away surrounded by her family on Tuesday, February 21, 2017 at the age of 62 in Phoenix, Arizona. Joyce is preceded in death by her father, John "Jack" Kossick and her mother, Kathryn Kossick. She is survived by her two children, Gear (Chelsey) Misner and Zeke (fiance Cori) Misner; her granddaughter, Reagan Misner; her significant other, Art Shedlock; her three sisters, Joann (Fred) Wille, MaryAnn (Sam) Foco, and Jeanette (Ed) Burbank; and her two brothers, Don (Karen) Kossick and Jim (Marge) Kossick; as well as her many nieces and nephews. Joyce grew up in a loving family in the small town of Pinconning, Michigan. She was the youngest of six children. Joyce graduated from Ferris State University with a degree in Pharmacy and built an unprecedented career in Phoenix, AZ. Her career included working at the Arizona State Board of Pharmacy, the Arizona Board of Osteopathic Examiners, and Maricopa Integrated Health Systems where she finished her career as the Director of Pharmacy. Her biggest accomplishments did not come from behind a desk, but as a mother, grandmother, sister, and friend. She was the most caring, helpful, and motivating individual there was. Joyce loved spending time with her boys and watching them grow into men, cheering for University of Michigan football, eating Pinconning cheese and pickled bologna, lending an ear to those that needed to talk, reminiscing about her amazing childhood, golfing with her friends, and babysitting her granddaughter. A Memorial service for Joyce will be held at 3:00pm on Saturday, March 4, 2017 at Hansen Chapel, 8314 N. 7th Street, Phoenix 85020. Donations may be made to the at Visit for condolences.
