Joyce Fleischfresser, age 83, of Wisconsin Rapids, WI died Monday, October 16, 2017 at North Haven Assisted Living, Stevens Point, WI.

Private family services were held on Friday, October 20, 2017 at Ritchay Funeral Home in Wisconsin Rapids, WI.

Joyce was born October 6, 1934 in Merrill, WI to Alfred and Lillian (Saeger) Rieckenberg. She married Robert Fleischfresser on July 31, 1954 in Merrill, WI. He preceded her in death on March 14, 1983.

Joyce attended the Milwaukee School of Beauty. She held customer service jobs for over 30 years at Haney Drugs, Shopko Pharmacy, Siefert's and Boldt Construction. Joyce retired in October 1996.

Joyce was an avid reader, gardener, puzzle solver, enjoyed bicycling and spending many fun and special times with all of her grandkids that she loved so much. Joyce always looked like a million dollars and her hair, clothes and make-up were always perfect. Joyce was ready to go at a moment's notice for any occasion.

Joyce is survived by three children, Lori (Mark) Nelson, Scott (Patty) Fleischfresser and Susan (Kevin) Henke, all of Wisconsin Rapids, WI; four grandchildren, Brice (Carmen) Kundinger, Adam (Alyssa) Fleischfresser, Christina (Kevin) Tritz and Jenna (Nathan) Stein; and seven great grandchildren, Brody Kundinger, Morgan Kundinger, Kasten Tritz, Declan Tritz, Ava Tritz, Rosalynd Fleischfresser and Jameson Fleischfresser.

Joyce's family would like to thank the staff at North Haven Assisted Living for their loving and compassionate care and a special thank you, to her hospice nurse Stacey, at Heartland Hospice.

"Having gone to a parochial school for her early years, Joyce formed a love of hymns and music in general and could always be heard humming and singing her favorites, whether hymns, Eddie Arnold or Glen Campbell. She always had a song in her heart, right up until the end and her singing voice was beautiful. Joyce was always so friendly and outgoing and people always commented on what a nice person she was. She was a very loyal friend to her friends and would still try to visit them even when her Alzheimer's was getting worse. That was just the kind person she was- always caring about others. Joyce was a loving Mother, who will be greatly missed by her family- Love you Mom."
