Obituary for Joyce Marcella Giddings

Joyce Marcella Giddings, 78, of Richland Center died Thursday, January 2, 2020 at the Richland Hospital. She was born on May 7, 1941 in the Bell Center, Gays Mills area, the daughter of Clay and Alta (Bankes) Kelley. On October 12, 1957 Joyce married Kenneth Giddings in Prairie du Chien and they raised 9 children. Joyce was a loving mother with a sense of humor and strength that endured throughout her life. Joyce canned hundreds of quarts of fruits and vegetables grown in the garden she and Kenneth planted and grew every year. They always had plenty to share with friends and family as well as contributing vegetables to Riverdale Manor over the years. A last-minute guest could always find a chair to pull up to the table. The special chicken and pies she created will be missed by her family.

Joyce is survived by four daughters: Nila (Vaughn) Frye of Waunakee,
Nina (Dean) Faulkner of Richland Center,
Susan (Rodney Wentz) Slaughter of Lancaster,
LuAnna (Jake Klas) Staskal of Fennimore;
four sons: Kent, Adam, and Fred Giddings of Richland Center,
Ronald (Deb) Giddings of Livingston;
former son-in-law: Raymond Slaughter of McGregor, IA;
two brothers: Clyde Hayes of Richland Center,
Eldon Kelly of San Diego;
sister-in-law: Kathy Parr of California;
special friend: Jim Denman of Richland Center;
many grandchildren, great-grandchildren, other relatives, and friends.

Joyce was preceded in death by her parents, husband Ken, son Clay, former son-in-law Mitchell Staskal, ‘daughter-in-law,’ Linda Crary, as well as many siblings, other relatives and parents.

Thank you to Dr. Pappy and the caring staff at the Richland Medical Center who cared for Joyce. A special thank you to Heather Aves, Home Health Care Provider and Shannon, Melissa and staff at St. Croix Hospice, Platteville.
