Obituary for Joyce Helen Helzer-Hendricks

Joyce Helzer-Hendricks passed away surrounded by her loving family on Tuesday, May 14, 2019 at the age of 76 years.
Joyce was born on My 7, 1943 in Bay City, Michigan. She was the only child of Lester and Lucille (nee Karr) Harder. She was a 1960 graduate of Utica High School. On January 14, 1961, she married Leroy H. Helzer at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Sterling Heights. They shared 30 years of marriage and raised seven children together before Leroy’s passing on April 23, 1992. Later in life, she married Daniel Hendricks at Christ Lutheran Church in Sterling Heights. Joyce worked as a cook for Utica School District and in nursing homes for many years. She was a huge Elvis fan and had the opportunity to visit Graceland. Joyce was full of life and laughter. She was fun spirited and had a heart of gold. Joyce was a wonderful mother and an even better grandmother. She loved her children and grandchildren beyond words. Joyce grew up on a farm and there found her love of canning and cooking. She was an excellent cook, especially homemade pizza. Joyce will be greatly missed by her family and all who knew her.
Joyce is survived by her children, Butch (Michelle) Helzer, Yvonne (Dan Berkholz) Helzer, Dawn (George Schuran) Helzer, Ron (Laurie) Helzer, Karen Helzer-LaParl, Ken (Mary) Helzer and Nancy (Jeff) Whitmore; husband, Daniel Hendricks; seventeen grandchildren and eleven great-grandchildren with number twelve due in July.
