In memory of
Joyce Ann Hillenbrand
Joyce Ann Hillenbrand Evansville - Joyce Ann Hillenbrand passed away on July 29, 2020. Joyce was born May 4, 1944 in Evansville, Indiana, the third of four daughters to parents Esther and Guy Maurer. Joyce attended Millersburg School and Lockyear Business College. She worked as office manager for doctors Sterne, Radcliffe and Leibundguth and also held positions at Colonial Garden Center where her love of plants and crafts truly flourished. She was active in the Germania Maennerchor Ladies Auxiliary, serving as President several times. Her biggest achievement and greatest love was her family. She married Thomas Hillenbrand on September 26, 1964 and together had two sons, Thomas and Jason. She was a loving mother and proud grandma who would do anything for her four grandkids. Joyce loved to make crafts and sell items at local craft fairs. She was a fantastic cook and baker, enjoying German recipes and trying new things. Joyce loved to travel and enjoyed trips with her sister Judy and brother-in-law Reggie to many of his Marine Corps reunions. Her attention to detail was prominent in her art, penmanship, kindness with strangers, and ability to care for others. To share in Joyce's unique sense of humor was to be a part of something special. If you knew her, you loved her. She was preceded in death by her beloved son, Jason; her husband, Tom; niece Regina Champlain; sister, Julia (Judy) Champlain; brother-in-laws, Reginald Champlain and Paul Kroeger; nephew, John Kroeger; nephew-in-law, Jeff Scott, and her parents. Joyce is survived by two sisters, Guylene Maurer and Dorothy Kroeger; as well as her son, Thomas Hillenbrand and his wife Libby, their children Tommy and Tally; daughter-in-law, Shawn, and grandchildren Devin and Reginald; and many nieces and nephews. The love and joy these family members brought to Joyce's world showed in everything she did. Funeral services will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Friday, August 7, 2020, at Alexander West Chapel, officiated by Fr. Ted Tempel, with burial to follow at Alexander Memorial Park. Friends may visit on Friday from 11:00 a.m. until service time at the funeral home. In lieu of flowers, donations can be sent to Southern Indiana Honor Flight or the Wes Atterbury Foundation.
