A private graveside service will be held on Saturday, November 7, 2020 at the Grove Hill Cemetery in Morrison with Mr. Ken Renkes officiating. The Morrison Chapel of the Bosma-Renkes Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to the Alzheimer’s Association, or to Windsor Manor in honor of the loving care bestowed on Joyce over the last two years.

Joyce was born March 31, 1949, in Morrison, IL, to Marvin and Virginia (Olson) Siefken.

A few years later she was employed by Smith Trust Bank in Morrison and began as a popcorn girl and handled the bank rewards/incentives program; soon after she became a teller. She later worked for Marquette Bank and managed the Senior Travel program and frequently traveled with them to numerous parts of the country. She retired from Wells-Fargo Bank in 2011.

Survivors include her husband, Steven; one son, Ryan Miley of Fulton, IL; one brother, Gary (Barb) Siefken of Morrison, IL; a niece, Jenna (Ralph) Copeland of Erie, IL; a nephew, Bill (Nikki) Siefken of Camanche, IA and several great nieces and great nephews.
