Joyce M (Warembourg) Knoop

September 30, 1930 ~ September 9, 2023 (age 92) 92 Years Old


Joyce M. Knoop,

Joyce was a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, passed away peacefully in Brighton on September 9, 2023, just shy of her 93rd birthday.  Born on September 30, 1930, in Dacono to Aimable and Marie Warembourg, Joyce was a beacon of love, kindness, and friendship to all who knew her.

Joyce is survived by her children: sons Harry and Dave (Joan) and daughters Edie Couture and Amy (Chris) Upkes. She is also the proud grandmother of five: Carol Jones, Kyle (Taylor) Knoop, Stacie (JD) Welter, Shalene (Reid) Taylor, and Kayleigh Hall (Arnaud) Lacombe, and great-grandmother of ten: Steven and Brook, Knox and Korra, Maverick and Deegan, Odin, Heidrun, Lilith, and Mathieu.  Joyce was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Stanly C. Knoop, her parents, and her sister, Lena.  She is also survived by her brother, Philip (Sharon) Warembourg.

Joyce was a graduate of the local high school and spent most of her life as a devoted housewife and homemaker. She was known for her strong commitment to the community, playing the organ at the Christian Church in Frederick and serving as the secretary at the Methodist Church in Brighton.  Her dedication to her faith and community were an inspiration to many.

Joyce had a zest for life and enjoyed a good game of cards and bowling.  She was also a skilled crochet artist, creating beautiful pieces that will serve as lasting memories of her talent and creativity.  Her home was always a welcoming place, filled with warmth, love, and the smell of something delicious cooking in the kitchen.

Joyce’s life was a testament to the quote by Helen Keller, “The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched – they must be felt with the heart.”  She had a heart full of love for her family and friends and left a profound impact on everyone she met.  Her warm smile, friendly nature, and loving kindness will be dearly missed but never forgotten.

We remember Joyce as a woman of strong faith, a loving mother, a doting grandmother, and a caring friend.  She was a woman who lived her life with grace, dignity, and an unwavering spirit of kindness.  Her legacy of love, friendship, and kindness will live on in the hearts of those she touched.

Please join us in celebrating the life of Joyce M. Knoop, a remarkable woman who lived her life to the fullest, cherishing every moment with her loved ones.  Let us honor her memory by embracing her values of love, kindness, and friendship, remembering her not only for the life she lived but also for the lives she touched.   Let us remember Joyce, not with sadness, but with gratitude for having had her in our lives.
