Memorial service is 2 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 1, at Trinity Lutheran Church, 1037 10th St., in Bridgeport. Pastors Gerald Epperson and Gerald Peterman will co-preside.
Joyce was born in Friendship June 11, 1937, the first of three daughters born to Henrietta and Bennie Wentrcek. She graduated from Taylor High School, class of 1955.
After watching her walk down Main Street in her multi-layered petticoats and penny loafers, Calvin Wolff crashed into a beer truck and fell instantly in love. They were married Sept. 2, 1956, and recently celebrated their 56th wedding anniversary.
To this union were born a son, Russell, and a daughter, Suzanne. Calvin’s work took them from Austin to Dallas, and Joyce made comforting and inviting homes wherever they lived. She lived a godly life, holding membership at Faith Lutheran Church in Austin, St. Andrew Lutheran Church in Hurst and Trinity Lutheran Church in Bridgeport, serving on Altar Guild at each. She was also involved with the Beta Sigma Phi sorority and the Euless and Fort Worth Garden Clubs.
During recent weeks, Joyce was given special care by the loving nurses and staff at the Cancer Care Center and Wise Regional Health System in Decatur for which the family is very grateful.
She was preceded in death by her father, Bennie, and her brother, Richard.
Survivors include her husband, Calvin; mother, Henrietta; children Russell and Rebekah, and Suzanne and Steve; granddaughter Kelly; sisters JoAnn and Maxine; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
Memorials can be made to Trinity Lutheran Church, P.O. Box 247, Bridgeport TX 76426 and the Wise County Clinical Care Associates, 2010 South Ben Meritt Drive, Decatur, TX 76234.
