In Memory of Joyce Murray

January 16, 1933 - February 26, 2020

Joyce Murray passed away peacefully at the age of 87 on February 26, 2020.  She spent most of her life in Milwaukee where she worked for the Milwaukee Police Department. 

Upon retirement, she moved to Barron, and most recently, to Prairie Farm where she resided at the Pioneer Nursing Home.

Joyce was a kind and gentle person whose most treasured times were spent with her family, especially her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.  An avid Green Bay Packers and Milwaukee Brewers fan, she never missed watching a game.  She also enjoyed going to the casino and playing her favorite card game, sheepshead.

Surviving are children, Linda (Rod) Wiemeri of Barron, Kathleen (Pete) Petersen of Phoenix, AZ, and Neil (Jan) Murray, Jr. of Sheboygan Falls; grandchildren, Brian Wiemeri of Eau Claire, Renee Pearson of Roswell, GA, David (Sarah) Wiemeri of Spooner, Jamie Petersen of Phoenix, AZ and Robert Murray of Milwaukee; great-grandchildren, Britney and Carter Wiemeri, Connor and Myah Pearson; special niece and nephew, Bob and Dorothy Mendyk of Sugar Camp, WI; and many nieces and nephews and friends.

Joyce was preceded in death by her parents, Albert and Millie Honzelka; infant granddaughter, Lori Wiemeri; grandson-in-law, Matthew Pearson; sisters, Dorie Sullivan and Lois Bursten; brothers, Loren and Ronald Honzelka.

A private celebration of her life will be held in the spring with final resting place at Wayside Cemetery in Barron.

Joyce was immensely proud of her family and leaves behind nothing but beautiful memories.

Arrangements are being handled by Rausch and Steel Funeral Home in Barron.
