Date: Saturday, July 14, 2018
Time: 12:00 until 2:00 PM
Location: Lindsey Funeral Home

Funeral:
Date: Saturday, July 14, 2018
Time: 2:00 PM
Location: Lindsey Funeral Home


Joyce Kay Hocking of Lakeville passed away unexpectedly on July 9th while working towards recovery from a serious motor vehicle accident on May 24, 2018. She was born in Mt. Gilead, Ohio on July 4, 1940 to Richard Wolcott and Dorothy Adcock Hartmann. Joyce lived her life in service of the Lord and others.

Joyce grew up in Canton, Ohio graduating from Lincoln High School in 1958. She continued her education at Kent State University and Ashland University. She relocated to Lakeville in 1972 with her family to operate the Round Lake Golf Course. Joyce owned and operated Joyce’s Fashions in Shreve and La Jolie Boutique in Wooster. Next, she became an educator at the Wayne County Career Center teaching marketing, small business management and tutoring those with learning challenges. After her “retirement” in 2012 she went back to work assisting others in the home health care field. Throughout these years she raised her busy family and served as a foster mother and mentor to countless others. Joyce loved the Lord and her church, actively serving with the food pantry and card ministries.

Joyce is survived by her children: Tami (Rick) Geib of Massillon, Elayna Hocking of Reno, NV, Brad (Shelly) Hocking of Chippewa Lake, and Chrissy Hocking of Lakeville; grandchildren: Brian (Jocelyn) Geib, Brett (Riley) Geib, Blair (Max) Vilayseng, Lauren Hocking and Alisha Hocking; and great grandchildren: Greta, Turner, Tre-von, Maliq, Oliver and Phoebe; a sister: Barbara (Bob) Hoyt of Big Pool, MD, a brother: John (Elaine) Wolcott of Canton, GA; a niece: Jennifer McBride; and nephews: John and Mark Wolcott.

Joyce was fiercely independent and lived life on her own terms. She loved her family unconditionally and if she knew you, you were probably considered family! Joyce especially loved spending time with her grandchildren making memories on Odell Lake, on trips and in all kinds of adventures. And then she found pure joy with the great grandchildren relishing each moment she got to spend with them and watching them grow.

She loved dessert, a good cup of tea and quietly reflecting on her life through prayer and journaling. Joyce had a big heart, aided many people during her life always putting the needs of others before her own and did her part in making this world a better place. She will be greatly missed by her family and friends.

The family extends their heartfelt thanks to the staff at Akron General Medical Center and Copley Health Care for their care of Joyce during her final weeks.

The family will receive friends on Saturday, July 14, 2018 from 12-2pm after which a Celebration of Joyce’s Life will begin at 2pm in the Lindsey Funeral Home, 123 N. Market St., Loudonville, OH 44842, with Pastor Steve Sullivan officiating. In lieu of flowers the family suggests donations in her memory to the Lakeville United Methodist Church, P.O. Box 66, Lakeville, OH 44638 or a charity of your choice.
