Joyce Pratt Obituary

Joyce Pratt, 85, passed away on January 13, 2024, surrounded by her loving daughters.  She was born in Fairmont, West Virginia on December 5, 1938, to the late James and Mildred Oliver. 

 

Joyce was employed by Sears & Roebuck for many years as a Sales Associate. After her retirement, she enjoyed traveling with her late husband, Bob. One of their favorite places to visit was Hilton Head, SC. They spent a lot of time together walking the beach. She also enjoyed shopping and crafting with stained glass, jewelry making, and scrapbooking.

 

Joyce was a wonderful woman who devoted her life to her family and was always willing to help anyone who needed it. She was an excellent cook and looked forward to family meals. Her greatest joy in life was her family, especially spending time with her grandchildren.

 

Joyce optimistically endured many health issues over the last few years. She fought a courageous battle with the most serious of them, but the most recent of which was just too much for her to endure. She was loved very much and will be deeply missed.

 

Along with her parents, Joyce was preceded in death by her husband, Robert Pratt.  She is survived by her daughters, Kim Cowger, Krenda (Garry) Kuether, and Kelli (Chris) Gorsuch; grandchildren, Brittany and Brandon Kuether, Kylie and Kassidy Gorsuch; great-granddaughter, Avery; sister, Janice Griffith; as well as many other family and friends.

 

A funeral service will be held at 1 P.M. on Friday, January 19, 2024, at Schermesser Funeral Home, 600 E. Turkeyfoot Lake Road, Akron, Ohio 44319.  Family and friends may call on Thursday, January 18, 2024, from 4 to 7 P.M. at the funeral home and for 1 hour before the service on Friday.
