Born on October 25, 1936 in Seville, Joyce graduated from Medina High School and married Bob Peterson in 1956. She remained in the Akron area her entire life. A homemaker for many years, Joyce worked tirelessly at her daughters and granddaughters businesses for the past 20 years.
She was preceded in death by her mother, Anna (Bauer) Harger; and husband, Bob Peterson.
She was the devoted mother to her only daughter, Lori Mandich (Sam) of Wadsworth; granddaughter, Candice Shubert Lischeid (Creg) of Wadsworth; and her latest love, great-grandson, Grady Lischeid, she will be truly missed.
A heartfelt and most sincere thank you to the staff at Liberty Residence II and her special friend and cousin, Phyllis Leohr.
A private celebration of her life will be held for family at a later date.
ln lieu of flowers, Joyce would want a donation made to your favorite charity.
