Joyce H. Kirchman

Joyce H. Kirchman, 77, Algoma, passed away peacefully on April 28, 2020 at Oak Creek Assisted Living, Algoma. She was born on April 23, 1943 to the late Philip and Marie (Malfroid) Yunk. She married her husband David Kirchman on July 21, 1962 in Lincoln. Through her life, she worked as a Physical Therapy Assistant at the Long-Term Care facility in Algoma. Joyce was a devoted wife and it was clear how deeply she loved her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. There were many Sundays spent visiting around the kitchen table that usually ended with a game of Yahtzee. She spent her life dedicated to helping people, a faithful member of St. John’s Lutheran Church in Rankin, St. John’s Ladies Aid, the Joyce Club, and in her free time she loved crafting and gardening. She was well known for her immaculate and ever-expanding flower beds. She has a smile and laugh that could light up any room.
