Joyce Nugent

Joyce Nugent

She was born in Menasha, Wisconsin and grew up in Dowagiac, Michigan. Joyce married Tom Nugent, the love of her life.

Joyce was born to the late Sidney Amundson and Martha Zaretzke Amundson, the youngest of three. Her brother Vernon “Jimmy” Amundson (deceased), and sister Gladys Weaver. Joyce son Sidney Sears (deceased).

Those who knew Joyce will remember her quick-witted, great sense of humor, a very independent woman who lived life on her terms. You knew she was sick when she didn’t go to bingo. I am sure she already has her seat at the bingo hall in heaven.
