Joyce E. Hathaway

d. November 4, 2014


Joyce (Imbs/Voigt) Hathaway, 76, of La Crosse WI, died Tuesday Nov. 4, 2014 following complications from a fall. She was born on Dec. 24, 1937 at Grandview Hospital, La Crosse, WI to Gladys and Roy Imbs, and used to joke about not liking the addition of ‘PS Happy Birthday’ added to the bottom of Christmas cards she received. Joyce graduated from Central High School on June of 1955, and was a popular gal who was active in marching band, and would often be found water skiing on weekends.

Joyce is survived by one brother; Bob (Carol) Imbs and their sons Jason and Jordan, Vanessa’s daughters, Amber and her husband Lance, their son Cameron; Kelly and her husband Josh, and their children Nessa, Kain and Raven; Asher and her husband Collin; Jeff (Jennifer) Voigts children Greyson and Julia; Lisa (Randy Thomson) son’s , Trevin and Mason.

She was a talented seamstress, sewing outfits for us when we were young (even though back then we didn’t know it was cool), altering clothes and doing sewing jobs for people, rarely taking money from people. She loved cooking German and Syrian food, and loved to overdose on fruits and sweets. Mom loved feeding the birds, scolding the squirrels and brightening places with her green thumb and love of plants.

In lieu of flowers memorials are preferred to the Gundersen Medical Foundation for Palliative Care and the Heart Institute, 1900 South Avenue, La Crosse, WI 54601.
