Joyce O. Webb

Joyce Opal Webb, age 86, of Potterville, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, August 11, 2021, at Thornapple Manor in Hastings. She was born May 6, 1935, in Howell, the daughter of Joseph and Helen (Poole) Anderson. Joyce was raised in Michigan’s upper peninsula in the town of Curtis. She was proud of her home town. At a young age she worked at The Eat Shop in Curtis and it was there that she met a handsome young man by the name of Donald Rex Webb. On November 1, 1952, they married in Manistique, Michigan. From a young age Joyce had an affinity for horses that would turn into a life long passion. In her spare-time she enjoyed quilting, crocheting, and cross stitching. She had a tremendous sense of humor and could light up a room with just her presence. Joyce loved to dance and had an abundant amount of energy. But first and foremost, she adored her children and grandchildren.
Joyce is survived by her husband of 69 years, Donald; children: Donald Webb of Northville, Sandy (Wayne) Simpson of Charlotte, Sheryl (Jeff) Towe of Charlotte, Cindy Albrecht of Dimondale, Daryl Webb of Potterville, Randy (Helen) Webb of Manistee; 14 grandchildren; numerous great grandchildren; several great great-grandchildren; siblings: Jim (Norena) Anderson of Curtis, Judy Anderson of Manistee; Jack Anderson of Lansing, Steve Anderson of Perry; and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
She was preceded in death by her parents; siblings: Tom Anderson, Patricia Smith, Charlie Anderson; parents-in-law, Jesse and Louise Webb; and sister-in-law, Vi Webb Shope.
