JOYCE ILENE BELL, daughter of Irvin and Inez (Wilvers) Ginder, was born on September 18, 1942, in Salina, Kansas and passed away on December 11, 2018, at her home in Marshfield, at the age of 76.

On January 5, 1962, she was united in marriage with Jim Bell, and to this union two sons were born, all surviving.

Together, they owned and operated Bell Motors in Salina, where she worked as the service manager and auto salesman. Joyce and Jim later joined the Millwood Realty Sales Team, where they sold real estate until their retirement satisfying her customers and making easy work for her technicians.

Joyce placed her faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. In Salina, she was a member of the 1st Covenant Church. After moving to Marshfield, she attended James River Church.

She loved spending time with her family. Her grandchildren were everything to her and there wasn’t anything she wouldn’t do for any of them.

She is survived by Jim, her husband of 56 years; two sons: Ed Bell, of Marshfield, and Craig Bell and his wife Lydia, of Marshfield; nine grandchildren: Elisha, Joshua, David, Stephanie, Hanna, Jeremiah, Elly, Serenity and Daniel; and one great-child: Luna Bell.

Joyce was preceded in death by her parents and one sister: Pat Mosier.

Private memorial services were held for the family. At her request, Joyce’s cremation was trusted to the direction of Fraker Funeral Home, Marshfield.
