Joyce Wolf went to be with the Lord, Wednesday July 26, 2023 at her home in Atwood. She was 94 years old.
Joyce was born August 30, 1928 in Milford, Indiana to Herman and Ruth (Wise) Miller. She spent most of her adult life in Kosciusko County, graduating from Milford Schools and later from Fort Wayne Beauty College. On February 11, 1950, she married James M.Wolf; they shared more than 65 years together before his passing in 2016.
Joyce was a longtime member of Otterbein Methodist Church in Atwood where she loved and served her church family and her Lord Jesus. She was also involved in numerous clubs such as the United Methodist Women, Atwood Home Study and Red Hat. She was an avid basketball fan cheering on her favorite Indiana and Georgia teams.
In the Spring and Summer, she could always be found in her flower and vegetable gardens. She shared her bounty with friends and family and often entered them in the 4-H Fair; this year she was recognized for her Pickles. Her favorite activity was growing beautiful roses and sharing them with others.

She is also survived by many nieces, nephews and a large extended family. In addition to her husband, James Wolf, she was preceded in passing by several siblings and son-in-law, Mark Slabuagh.
