BREMEN-Joyce M. Klingerman, 69, passed away on April 28, 2024, peacefully in her home in Bremen.

Joyce married the love of her life, Brian E. Klingerman, on September 7, 1985. Together, they raised their two daughters, Jessica and Brandi, and built a beautiful life.

Joyce was born on February 16, 1955, to Louis J. and Lucille T. (Veclotch) Emenaker and graduated from Plymouth High School in 1973. Joyce spent the bulk of her career at U.S. Granules Corporation in Plymouth for 45 years, serving as their Executive Vice President for more than a decade.

Joyce spent her life having fun on the lake, cheering on the Chicago Bears and Fighting Irish with her husband, taking trips to Las Vegas with friends, and caring for her family. She made life a lot of fun for everyone with her witty sense of humor, love of music, and fun-loving attitude. She was known for her fierce independence, strong will, and kind heart.

More than anything, Joyce loved taking care of her girls and being a doting grandmother.

Joyce will be sorely missed by her daughters Jessica Klingerman and Brandi (Zachary) Wampler, and grandson Ivan Wampler.

She is survived by her sister Susan (Herb) Lechlitner and brother George (Linda) Emenaker; in-laws Chester (Skip) Klingerman, Karen Klingerman, Kristi (Steve) Burkins, and several nieces and nephews; and good friends Mike and Betty Weldy and their children.

In heaven, Joyce joins her husband Brian, brother L. Michael Emenaker, and her parents.
