Joyce Elaine Kobliska, 84, of Siloam Springs, Arkansas passed away peacefully Friday, October 1, 2021 at home.
She was born June 2, 1937 in Blue Island, Illinois to Ernest Brumwell and Grace Peters-Brumwell, and was their only child. On April 25, 1959, she married her high school sweetheart, Jerome “Jerry” Kobliska, and together they shared 62 years of marriage, largely in the Chicago area and at their retirement home in Hastings, Michigan.
Joyce loved Jesus Christ. She was a member of the Seventh-day Adventist Church and enjoyed giving Bible Studies to bring others to know Jesus. She had a giving heart, and from this she would help with numerous fundraisers and care for many animals. In her spare time, she and Jerry would travel, enjoy the outdoors, and tend to their home and gardens. Their most precious times together were holidays and vacations with children and grandchildren close by.
She is survived by her loving husband, Jerome “Jerry” Kobliska of the home; 1 son, David Kobliska and wife, Beth of Siloam Springs; 1 daughter, Susan Caster and husband, Trent of Ashville, New York; 3 grandchildren, Caleb Kobliska, Jonas Caster, and Isabella Caster; and many others who will miss her greatly.
The family will host a memorial service to celebrate Joyce’s life at a later date.
