Welcome to the memorial page for

Joyce Ione Sutich

June 22, 1935 ~ December 13, 2017 (age 82)

Joyce moved on at 15 minutes to midnight on Wednesday, December 13, 2017 at Peace Hospice with Jim, Leslie and Spencer in her presence.

Joyce was born in Poplar, in 1935.  At the age of seven the family relocated to Great Falls.  She attended Great Falls schools, the Emerson, original Paris Gibson, and Great Falls High graduating in 1953.  She married Jim in August of 1953.

Her parents were Ralph Lode and Mabel Snetsinger, they of course have preceded her; along with her sister, Shirley Kay Batt. 

Remaining family members are her husband, Jim; daughter, Leslie; grandson, Spencer; son-in-law, Kevin Frasz; sister, Mary Ann Hutchens; sister-in-law, Pam (Tom) Duncan, Cheryl (Ed) Pizzini; brother-in-law, Jerry Sutich; nephews and nieces. It was Joyce’s expressed desire to have no formal services and she wanted dispersion of her cremains.

A memorial party will be announced after the holiday.

I am sure Joyce would desire that all family and friends enjoy this special season with its festivities and decor.
