Beloved wife, mother and grandmother passed away on Friday, February 7, 2020 at Covenant HealthCare – Harrison Campus. Age 75 years. The daughter of the late Larry and Vivian (Allore) Hagerty, Joyce was born on May 18, 1944 in Saginaw, Michigan. She married her high school sweetheart, Stan Schultz, on September 10, 1966. He survives her. She was a former member of St. John Paul II Parish – St. Josaphat Church where she volunteered as an afterschool care provider. Joyce also was a former playground supervisor at Weiss School. She currently was a member at Holy Spirit Catholic Church and her faith was important to her. Joyce will long be remembered for being a fabulous cook, especially Chinese cuisine. She showed her love to family and friends by sending cards and notes of concern, always addressed as “to my friend…”. Joyce enjoyed watching sports and summer camping trips early on. Watching her grandchildren in their various activities brought her joy.
