Lindeman, Joyce 1/23/1933 - 9/8/2021 Ypsilanti MI Joyce Irene Lindeman, 88, died Sept. 8, 2021, at her Ypsilanti home after a valiant battle with ALS. Ever the consummate teacher and coach, Joyce modeled gracious and generous living and dying, asking about or bestowing gifts to family, friends, neighbors and student-athletes until her last day. While the disease made talking difficult, she found ways to converse with many members of her beloved Michigan Synchro Masters team, whom she coached for 20 years, and dozens of friends who visited during the past nine months. A graduate of Eastern Michigan University, Joyce had a storied teaching career at Thurston High School and the University of Michigan Division of Kinesiology. She retired in 2000. Joyce was pre-deceased by her father, Roger; mother, Myrtle; and brother, Roger (Terry). Among the many left to share her deep Maize and Blue spirit and fond memories at her cottage in Parry Sound, Ontario, Canada, are her nephew Roger (Becky) Lindeman of Brownstown Township; grand-nephews Travis Sesnie, Kurtis Sesnie, and RJ Lindeman; grandniece Alexis Sesnie; sister-in-law Jackie Lindeman of Southgate; and housemate Cindy Kincaid; along with dozens of friends, colleagues, neighbors, and former swimmers. Special thanks to Rev. Louise Ott, Elaine Winter, Marge Andrews, Pat Hanson, and Rhonda Shnerpunas for their special care during recent months. A Celebration of Joyce's Life is scheduled at the First United Methodist Church of Ypsilanti Saturday, Jan. 22, 2022, with visitation at 10am and service at 11am. Arrangements will be provided by Stark Funeral Home. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to Michigan Synchro Masters, Arbor Hospice, First United Methodist Church of Ypsilanti, or the ALS Society of Michigan.

Joyce gave so much to the Aquatics Community. It is with great sadness, I hear this news. May you all, in her family, know the gratitude we feel for her presence in our lives.
