Joyce Schoenemann was born May 25, 1935 to her parents Frank and Vlasta (Mais) Schoenemann in Caldwell, TX. She was married to John J. Miller in Houston, TX on May 18, 1979. Joyce was always very active, in her church and community. She was an accountant most of her life and was the book keeper for the Methodist church. Joyce enjoyed fishing, baking and planting flowers in her yard. She always had a garden and would give most of her harvest to help people in need. Joyce loved to travel to see friends, family and places. Traveling was a passion of hers, but coming home was the sweetest reward for those vacations. Joyce loved her family and was always asking to hear stories about her grandchildren and great grandchildren. Joyce was a loving and caring person helping all those in need with a meal or a trip to the doctor. She was your go to gal for a friend in need.

Survivors include her daughters, Sharon Dehnert and husband Howard, and Deborah Hailey and husband Glen; a brother, David Schoenemann; a sister, Mavis Earls; four grandchildren, Elaine Dietz and husband Jimmy, Van A.
