JOYCE MOHR JEZIERSKI
Joyce Mohr Jezierski, 81, of Duluth and Wild Rice Lake passed away on May 6, 2013 at St. Luke's Hospital in Duluth.
Joyce was born in Superior, Wis., on Nov. 13, 1931 to Floyd "Bud" and Stenette Mohr.
She attended schools in Duluth and was a Duluth Denfeld graduate, Class of 1949.
Joyce married the love of her life, Dan Jezierski on Aug. 11, 1956 at SS Peter & Paul Catholic Church in Duluth. Joyce worked at Livingstons Big Duluth and Peavy Co. before becoming a homemaker, raising her four children. She continued her loving and carrying ways as she cared for many neighborhood children/relatives in her home, giving her the nickname "Auntie Joyce".
Joyce was a dedicated member of Christ Lutheran Church. Besides her strong faith, she was known for her incredible baking skills and was the hostess of many cabin picnics and countless bridal and baby showers. Joyce's contagious smile and incredible strength during her many years of illness was remarkable. She will be known best for her generosity, putting others' needs before her own, but mostly for the love she gave her family.
Joyce was preceded in death by her parents and her twin sister, Joan Salmi.
She is survived by her loving husband Dan of 56 years; children, Jeff (Jody) Jezierski, Jane (John) Neuenfeldt, Julie (Tim) Gross, Jill Jezierski and her fiancé Scott Johnson; grandchildren, Daniel, Dale and Megan Dietzmann, Ashley and Aili Balaich, Michael and Rachel Jezierski; great grandson, Sage Montgomery Levine; sisters, Aurelie Rowell and Kay (Pete) Olson; brothers, David (Bonnie) Mohr, Gary (Sally) Mohr, and many friends and relatives.
The family would like to thank the nursing staff on 2West St. Luke's Hospital and especially Joyce's primary physician: Dr. Julie A. Reichhoff.
