Joyce Hendershott, 79, of Evans, Colorado, passed away unexpectedly with family by her side on November 4, 2020 in Greeley, Colorado.

Joyce was born in Chicago, Illinois to Frederick Stuve & Margaret (Baumhardt) Blocker in 1941.

Joyce was a long-time employee at Intermatic, Inc. in Spring Grove, Illinois before retiring to Arizona. She was a staple at Gardner’s restaurant in Fox Lake, Illinois, making lifelong friends along the way. Joyce had many talents that she taught anyone who wanted to learn, how to bake and decorate cakes, sew, iron, cook, knit, crochet, and many other crafts. She gave the gift of giving to so many and asked for nothing in return. She was always one that lent the helping hand when and where it was needed.

Loving to be in nature and the great outdoors, she was honored to be a Den mother for the Cub and Boy Scouts of America, a coach in the Pigtail League, working in the garden, taking family and friends camping and calling the go cart races from her CB radio, just to name a few. Being an avid animal lover, she had a passion for tigers and American Humane Society. She also enjoyed spending time on local family and friend’s farms.

Joyce kept all the family and community holidays interesting and exciting for sure. From playing pyro on the 4th of July, getting family and friends involved with the community haunted house making all of the costumes each year, to the extravagant Easter egg hunts where it never failed that one egg could not be located until much later when it started to smell.

Joyce is survived by her children, Douglas (DeeDee) Hendershott Jr., Sherry Derkson-Hendershott, Terry (Shawn) Carlson, Holly Hendershott, and Misty Cisewski-Hendershott; 13 grandchildren ( Travis, Nicole, Cody, Carrie, Daylin, Joseph, Eddy, Isdro Jr., Ashly, Alexandra, William, Julia and Hailey); 1 great-grandchild (Joelle); nephew, Duane (Laura) Blocker and family, as well a large loving extended family.

She was preceded in death by her parents, brother, Kenneth Blocker and former husband, Douglas Hendershott, Sr.

Graveside services will be held privately. A Celebration of Life will be held virtually at 1PM-4PM central time on Saturday, November 28th, via Zoom. Please feel free to join the Celebration of Life using the information below. The family is asking that in lieu of flowers if you can kindly donate to a local no kill animal rescue/shelter or to the pet project Midwest at in her name.

My mother was the disciplinary of the house, so you didn't back talk or cross your eyes at her, if you wanted to keep your head or rump.
I remember the day Evista died i saw my mother crying and didn't know why.
And you ate what was on your plate, even if you dint like it.
But there was also a soft side to my mother, she enjoyed teaching us her cake decorating, and doing home made crafts. She had many talents that she passed on to us all.
She liked A good joke, and old play a good trick on you if need be. She was hard working and tought us that as well.
Mom you will be missed dearly 💔.

All she asked of her children was to graduate high school. Our mother was tough and expected us all to be better than her and be successful. She taught us all to never give up and always achieve our goals. I had the honor to tell my mom that she succeeded in having her 5 children earn their GED, or diplomas, and even some of us associate degrees. That she is also able to witness that her grandchildren are also graduating from high schools and universities/colleges.
Its interesting how the world functions, in her time education was needed, but skills in the trade is what got you hired. Today, you need the education and skills are lacking in the trades. I remember her telling me she fears for the grand kids because they will need both to be successful, and all I could say is well Mommy they have the best teach they can have and I hope you teach them your skills, leave the education side up to us kids to get that done. Mom~ you did an amazing job!

I remember the dinner call. When all of our names were called, on succession. Or when one of us got in trouble, we all got on trouble. But, I hand the best corner and seat.🤣
