Mary Jane Joyce

June 04, 1934 - October 05, 2022


Mary "Jane" Joyce, 88, of Winter Garden, Florida, passed away Wednesday, October 5, 2022. Jane, as she was known by her family and friends, was born June 4, 1934, in Bruceville, Indiana, to Gerald and Lois (Purcell) Wolfe. She married the love of her life, Jim Joyce, on November 22, 1956, and he preceded her in death on May 29, 2010. They enjoyed fifty-four years together.

During their marriage, Jim and Jane loved traveling and taking family vacations to places such as Las Vegas, Florida, Myrtle Beach, and many more. She loved finding and collecting Depression Glass. For those who knew Jane, the real joys of her life were spending time with her kids and grandkids, along with a glass bottle of Coke.

Jane is survived by two daughters: Susan (Mark) Moreland of Winter Garden, Florida and Julie (Marty) Bennett of Washington, Indiana; son, Ron (Diane) Joyce of Indianapolis, Indiana; and daughter-in-law, Debbie (White) Joyce of Washington, Indiana. She also leaves nine grandchildren; twelve great-grandchildren; and a sister, Sue (Bill) Kinman of Danville, Indiana.

Jane was preceded in death by her parents, Gerald and Lois Wolfe; her husband, Jim Joyce; and her son, J. David Joyce.

A private graveside service will be held at St. John's Cemetery in Washington, Indiana.
