Joyce Conard

September 4th, 1924 to August 6th, 2015
Joyce D. Conard, 90 (nearly 91), of Port Huron, died Thursday, August 6, 2015.

She was born September 4, 1924 in Newquay, England, to the late Alexander and Mabel Stimson.

A war bride, Joyce arrived in the United States in June of 1947, and married Albert J. Conard on September 6, 1947 (after a marriage proposal atop the Empire State Building, New York City.)

Joyce spent her teen years in England dodging the bombs of World War II and working for the Ministry of Food.

After her marriage to Al, she took on her biggest job - raising five children. She was truly a stay-at-home mom, having never learned to drive a car or ride a bike.

Joyce was preceded in death by her parents, brother, George, her husband, Al, and son-in-law, George Stracenrider.

Joyce is survived by her daughter, Gerri Stracenrider, sons, Tony (Sue) Conard, Richard (Ellen) Conard, Joe (Sharon) Conard, and Steve (Barb) Conard; grandchildren, Heather Stracenrider (fiancé Rich Urban and children, Allison and Ethan), Adam Stracenrider, Patrick (Casie) Conard, James Conard, Shannon (Ian) Burt, Nick (Kelley) Conard, Carrie Conard, Christy (Chris) Morden, Shelby Conard and Brendan Conard; great grandchildren include, Elijah and Greta Burt, Scott and Max Morden, Dalton and Devyn Conard.

May God bless and welcome her with open arms. TTFN Mom.

Visitation will be from 2 - 4 and 6 - 8 p.m. Sunday in the Karrer-Simpson Funeral Home.

Mass of Resurrection will be held at 10 a.m. Monday, August 10, 2015, in Holy Trinity Parish - St. Joseph Catholic Church. The Reverend Brian K. Cokonougher will officiate.

Burial will be in Mt. Hope Cemetery. Pallbearers will be Adam Stracenrider, Patrick Conard, James Conard, Nick Conard, Rich Urban and Brendan Conard.
