Miller, Joyce Irene; Waterford, MI; passed away Sunday, February 1, 2015, in Pontiac. Joyce was born in Utica, to Stanley John and Elsie Miller. Joyce grew up close to her mother’s family and after her father’s death during World War II, Bob Price married Joyce’s mom and was a fantastic father to her, her sister, Carol, and her brother, Dan. Joyce married John Charles Miller on May 24, 1958. The following year, they were blessed with their first son, Jeff. Being a mother was what Joyce was put on the Earth to do. She once said she was happiest with a baby in her arms and having a total of 7 children leaves no doubt that was true. Selfless, kind, caring, funny and well-loved, Joyce will be missed every day by her family. She is survived by her husband of 56 years, John Miller; 6 children, Jeff (Terry) of Phippsburg, Maine, Jamie (Tracy) of Port Orchard, Washington, Joel (Heather) of Pontiac, Judy Fazzolare (Bob) of Polk, Pennsylvania, Joanne Boenick (Derek) of Highland Township, and Jerry (Geanice) of Kalamazoo; 11 grandchildren, Christine, Jessica, Elisa, John, Rachel, Bobby, Heather, Kendra, Kegan, Larissa and Kearney; 4 great grandchildren; and siblings, Carol Hodges and Daniel Price. Joyce is preceded in death by her parents; and son, Jonathon. There will be a Private Memorial held by the family in Joyce’s honor to be arranged at a later date.Published in Daily Tribune on Feb. 3, 2015+Read More Share Listen to Obituary Remember Share a message, photo, or video below View all messages 6 "I miss you so much."- Judy "My sincere condolences to Mrs. Miller's family on the loss of..."- Kathie Travnikar"My heart is breaking, she was a wonderful friend.
