Joyce King, a lifelong resident of Baldwin, Wisconsin, died at her residence in West Bend, Wisconsin on June 21, 2019 at the age of 96.

Joyce was born on November 21, 1922 to Alger Carl and Anna (Rud) Morton, but was raised by her beloved paternal grandmother, Emma Morton and grandfather, Carl, in Gilmanton, Wisconsin. After graduation from Gilmanton High School as a 16 year old, she attended college at River Falls and received her teaching degree. That is where she met the love of her life, Jack. They were married on June 3, 1944 in Mondovi, Wisconsin and spent their first years together at Fort Sheridan were she taught incoming GI’s to read.

Joyce and Jack settled in Baldwin, Wisconsin and started their family. Joyce was a stay-at-home mom raising Terry, Candy and Jeff until she resumed her teaching career after her youngest started school. Joyce was not only a wonderful, loving mother, but also an excellent, caring teacher who inspired many young people as she taught them how to communicate and create through writing and literature. Joyce was also the first Reading Specialist at Greentree Elementary School, and once again, her compassion and expertise helped children reach their potential.

After Joyce and Jack retired they began to travel and attended Bible school in Florida. Both Joyce and Jack loved the Lord and were involved with Gideons International and prison ministry as well as opening their home to the original meeting place for New Life in Christ Church.

Joyce was a compassionate woman who loved her family dearly and wanted to be used in God’s Kingdom. She missed her “Jack” dearly until the moment she left us gaining her strength and courage from God until he called her home.

Joyce is survived by her sons Terry King and Jeff King (Debbie) and daughter Candy Tyberg (Paul); Grandchildren Jackie Petersen (Doug), Terry John King, and Michael King (Christina), Ericka Seifert (John), Adam Tyberg (Sarah), Seth Tyberg (Nacole), Micah Tyberg (Laura), Judah King (Danielle), Tabitha Pfanennstiel, Joshua King (Cheri), Jonathan King, Hannah King (Andrew), Sarah King, Abigail King, 24 great-grandchildren, and 1 great-great-grandchild.

The family will be having a celebration of Joyce's life on August 10th at 3:00 PM at the Phillip Funeral Home Chapel. Cards, condolences, and memories can be sent to: Candy Tyberg, N242 Riverside Drive, Kewaskum, WI, 53040 or Jeff King, 3306 Nottingham Way, Madison, WI 53713 or Terry King, 1824 Hilltop Drive, West Bend, WI, 53095.

Posted at 07:08pm We've been on the road visiting family in MN & ND so didn't note Joyce's passing until arriving home today, July 11. My memories of "Mrs. King" are all wrapped up in the more pleasant elements of 7th/8th grade English, and wanting to do my best (without working too hard, of course) at learning to spell all those words for spelling bees. Her voice still plays on my ears as distinct. I can see by the posted pictures that she will be missed by family, and I am quite sure there are many of her former students of which this will also be true.

It has been a wonderful privilege to have been a part of Joyce's life as a friend and pretend daughter. I loved visiting her and hearing stories of her life as a young person. Her wit and humor were very much a part of those visits and my vision of her will always be of her throwing her head back and laughing heartily at something that tickled her funny bone. She was ready to share her love for the Lord and eager to hear anything I had to share about something new I had just learned from the word. I will miss her but am so glad she finally got to go home to be with the Lord and Jack!

There are so many wonderful memories I don’t even know where to begin. Some of my favorite were the times Terry John and I spent at the lake. Grandma always had a wY of making everything fun. All the times we fished, swam, and just hung out at the lake will never be forgotten! I love you, grandma! I will miss you dearly!!! Rest In Peace.... Save me a seat!!!!
