Obituary for Joyce Marie Siller

Joyce Marie Siller, (nee Boudreau), was called to home to the Lord, on Saturday, December 1, 2012, at age 82. Beloved wife of John of fifty-nine years; dearest mother of John Jr. (Gail), Nancy (the late Gregory) Brown, Stephen, James, Susan (Bruce) Finkelstein and Daniel (Andrea); loving grandmother of Thomas (Brittany), Patrick, and Alex Siller, Christine (Michael) Leslie, the late Sean Brown, Kyle Brown, Rachel and Ryan Finkelstein, Nicholas, Eva, Olivia Siller and proud great grandmother of Madeleine Leslie. She is survived by her brother, Ronald (Sharon) Boudreau of Milton, Vermont.

Joyce was a native of Grand Isle, Vermont. She was a Registered Nurse and practiced for several years in hospitals in Vermont, where she met her husband to be, John Siller. Soon after being married, they moved to Tennessee where their first son was born. A year later they moved to Detroit and continued growing their family. She continued to practice nursing at the old Providence Hospital and Polio wards of the old Receiving Hospital complex, before devoting herself to family.

Her devotion to motherhood and family was paramount in her life�s goals, and always placed first in her actions and words. Her close spiritual relationship with Jesus and God were guiding fundamental lights in her love and care for everything in her life. Joyce enjoyed many things in life but embraced ceramic art as a personal hobby. She developed a traditional sense in the art and surrounded her home with many pieces which have become family treasures. She enjoyed the family garden and canning of many of our fruits and vegetables.

She spent many years as a volunteer and member of the Mount Carmel Mercy Hospital Guild, serving in the Gift Shop and mobile Gift Cart. Her life�s lasting love always focussed back on her family and the pursuit of the proper development and comfort of her children. She loved visiting Grand Isle, Vermont and Sydney, Nova Scotia for the enjoyment of the beauty of the areas and maintaining family ties. She was a great cook and excelled in Hungarian dishes, which we will all miss....

Visitation will be held at Lynch & Sons Funeral Home, 404 E. Liberty, Milford, Monday 3-7 PM with Rosary at 7 PM. Mass of the Resurrection will be held at St. Mary Catholic Church, 1955 E. Commerce Rd., Milford, Tuesday 11 AM with Fr. Ron Anderson officiating. Burial All Saints Cemetery, Waterford. Memorials may be made to Leukemia Research-U of M Hospital, Ann Arbor.
