Obituary for Joy J. DeNucci
Joy J. DeNucci passed away on March 20th, 2016 at Comforts of Home in Frederic, WI after a short battle with Cancer. Joy was born on May 19th, 1929 in Siren, WI.
Joy lived a full life of family and various employment opportunities. Joy spent many years residing in Cumberland where she was married to Martin DeNucci and raised three sons, Gary, Terry and Barry. Joy then worked for an underground cable company in Alaska followed by a move in 1976 to Wells, MN to work for Banquet Chicken and Wells Municipal Liquor for a number of years. Following her stop in Wells, Joy moved to Luck, WI in April of 1983 to assist in the business venture of her son, Gary and daughter in-law, Ione - DeNucci’s 35 Villa. Joy lived in Luck until November of 2009 when she moved into Comforts of Home in Frederic, WI.
To say Joy brought joy to others would be an understatement. Joy loved her family and friends more than life itself. Her greatest feeling was when she could put smiles on others’ faces. Joy was full of quirky one-liners that would make you stop and giggle. Right up to the end she took great pride in helping with games and other activities with her fellow residents, attending family events, and never missing friends’ and family’s special occasions with a card and phone call to make sure they got it.
Joy is preceded in death by her husband, Marty and her sons, Gary, Terry and Barry.
Joy is survived by daughter in-law, Ione of Luck; her grandchildren, Daunte of Rice Lake, Christina of Rice Lake, Nicholas (Cassie) of Farmington, MI, Brandon “Bear” (Cola) of Frederic, Cody “Coach” (Megan) of Osceola, Kasie (Colin) of Cushing; and 5 great-grandchildren, Courtney, Madison, Lillyan, Grayson and Waylon.
A Prayer Service will be held for Joy at St. Dominic Catholic Church in Frederic on Wednesday, March 30th at 11:00 a.m. A visitation will be held one hour prior to service.
A Celebration of Life luncheon will be served at Comforts of Home in Frederic following the church service.
