How Did We Do?

Joyce Lorraine Roth, 82, of Keokuk, passed away at her home on Saturday, September 14, 2019, after a courageous fight with cancer.

Joyce was born in southern Henderson County in Illinois, at home, on August 23, 1937, to Fredrick and Frances Hunter. She married Joseph Roth on September 9, 1962, in Warsaw, Illinois. He preceded her in death on November 6, 2013.

Joyce graduated from Terre Haute, Illinois, high school in 1955 and attended Gem City Business School in Quincy, Illinois.

Joyce was a member of Trinity United Methodist Church in Keokuk. She loved attending her grandchildren's activities and was an avid Hawkeye fan. She was a wonderful cook, like her mother, and was very particular about her yard and her home.

Survivors include her two sons, Jeff (Traci) Roth and Jay (Holly) Roth of Keokuk, Iowa; one sister Laurena Hunter of La Harpe, Illinois, and one brother Jim Hunter of Clearwater, Florida; six grandchildren Trevor, Bailey, Riley (Nate Leisenring), Connor, Spencer Roth and Sean Burke. Joyce is also survived by nieces, nephews and many cousins.

Joyce was also preceded in death by her parents, two brothers Wyverne and Leon, and two nephews Brad and Jarett.

A Celebration of her life will be at 1:00 PM Tuesday, September 17, 2019, at DeJong-Greaves Celebration of Life Center at 917 Blondeau Street in Keokuk with Pastor Jeff Bixby officiating. Burial will follow in Keokuk National Cemetery.

Visitation will be at the funeral home from 11:00 AM Tuesday until the service at 1:00.

Memorials are suggested to Lee County Hospice.
