Obituary of Joyce A. Strickler

Rockwall TX: Joyce A Strickler (nee Lengyel), 62, passed away on July 30, 2018 after a brief illness.

She was born in Lorain, Ohio on March 2, 1956. She grew up on a farm in Florence Township where she met the love of her life. That 44 year relationship took her to Colorado, Kentucky and finally Texas where she has lived the last 7 months to be close to her grandchildren.

Joyce was full of life and always the host of the party. Her green thumb never left her without a garden of fresh veggies right out the back door. She truly loved to cook and bake and host holiday parties for her large family. Her love for family is what brought her to Texas and now ultimately to Ohio to be laid to rest with her Mom and Dad.

She is survived by her husband, Kenneth; sons, Kenneth (Cortney) of Rockwall TX and Bryan of Louisville, KY; mother-in-law, Eileen Chiaramonte of Amherst, OH; grandson, Kamden Strickler of Rockwall, TX; granddaughter, Kadence Strickler of Rockwall, TX. sisters, Lois (Charles, Jr.) Manning of Collins, OH, Dorothy "Dottie" (Butch) Campbell of Vermilion, OH, Margaret Brant of Lorain, OH, and Shirley (Thomas) Halverson of Appleton, WI; brothers, Robert R. (Margaret) Lengyel of Vermilion, OH, Larry G (Michelle) Lengyel of Katy, TX, Charles R (Irene) Lengyel of Wakeman, OH, Raymond A. (Annette) Lengyel of Wakeman, OH, and Karl D (Mary) Lengyel of Plymouth, OH; and sister-in-laws, Cheri Hall of Elyria, OH and Sally Lengyel of Lorain, OH.

She was preceeded in death by her father, Sidney; mother, Dorothy; father-in-law, Harvey (Jake); brothers, Sidney "Mike", Ralph, and John Lengyel; sisters, Janet Gould (Lengyel), Janice Lengyel, and Mary Lou Lengyel; and her brother in law, Keith Brant.
