Joyce Sternitzky, age 75, of Granton, WI died Friday, August 12, 2022, at her home surrounded by her loving family.

 

Joyce Irene Dahl was born on May 7, 1947, at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Marshfield, WI the daughter of Arthur and Marie (Lindikugel) Dahl. She was baptized on June 8, 1947, at Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church in Granton and later confirmed there on March 26, 1961. On August 18, 1973, she was united in marriage to Gary Arnold Sternitzky by Reverend Roland Roehrs at the Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church. Joyce and Gary farmed their whole lives in the township of Lynn. Gary and Joyce also ran a Christmas Shop together, where they sold Christmas trees and ornaments that were handmade by Joyce.

 

Joyce was a life-long member of Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church in Granton. She adored Elvis and loved going to “Elvis impersonator” shows with her family. She also loved to watch cardinals, garden, work on puzzles and read for hours on end. Her greatest love, though, was her family. She loved her family first and foremost, and she loved spending time with all of them.
