Obituary

Joyce Darlene Jenkins, age 83, passed away on October 5, 2019 at Yoakum Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Yoakum, Texas. Joyce was born in Nodaway, Iowa on December 19, 1935, the first child of Charles Sylvester and Ida May (Lippold) Barker.

Joyce grew up in Iowa and graduated from Nodaway High School in 1954. She attended one year of business school and then married and moved to San Diego, California. She moved back to Villisca, Iowa in 1968 and began a career as a bookkeeper in payroll for National Farmer’s Organization. She was a loyal employee of NFO until her retirement in 2010. She was awarded for “40 Years of Dedicated Service.” Joyce enjoyed singing in the church choir and was a requested soloist at funerals and other church events. She was an excellent cook that could just whip up a meal or make a scrumptious dessert. Joyce’s fudge was a Christmas tradition. She loved attending Iowa State basketball and football games. After retiring she relocated to Victoria, Texas to be with her family. She continued her love of playing cards and bingo with her Senior Circle friends.

Joyce is survived by her daughter, Diane (Mark) Ehlers; granddaughters, Ashton Ehlers and Abby Ehlers; sisters, Erma Jean (Alan) Bishop and Karen Gourley; and brother, Paul (Judy) Barker. Joyce loved her family and was most proud of her Aggie granddaughters.

Joyce was preceded in death by her parents, former husband Sam Jenkins, and grandson Riley Ehlers. It is Riley’s turn to be spoiled by Grandma Joyce.

A visitation for family and friends will be held on Thursday, October 10, 2019 from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. followed by a chapel service beginning at 11:00 a.m. at Grace Memorial Chapel, US Hwy 87N, Victoria, TX. Interment to follow at Memory Gardens Cemetery.
