Joyce Leona Uecke

Joyce Leona Uecke (Sandberg), 85, of Menominee, Michigan passed away at home on November 10th. Joyce was born on September 25, 1933, in Marinette, Wisconsin to Carl and Margaret Sandberg. She graduated from Marinette High School, class of 1952. She married Ward (Mose) Uecke of Menominee and they were married for 63 years.

Joyce enjoyed going for walks, and could often being seen walking the Marinette-Menominee loop. Her favorite way to begin each day was to meet friends and family out for her morning coffee and breakfast. She seldom missed her favorite TV shows; Judge Judy and the Wheel of Fortune. Her most joy came from spending time with her loved ones, especially her grandchildren of which she was very proud of. Joyce was extremely generous and had the kindest heart.

Joyce is survived by her Husband Ward (Mose), Children Tom Uecke, Terry (Sandy) Uecke, Lynn (Kevin) Jaklin, Daughter-in-law Joan Beekman; Grandchildren, Tyler, Tatum, Joey, Logan, Margaret, Katelyn; her sister Carol (Ronald) Woods, along with many nephews and nieces.

She was preceded in death by her Father, Carl, Mother, Margaret, Sister Marilyn, and brother Carl.

Joyce is now walking in the sunshine.

Per Joyce’s wishes, a private burial will be held. The Family is planning a memorial service, and the details will be published at a later date.
