Joy Kathryn Stukel, 67, of Waukesha, passed away on the 8th day of February 2017, in Oconomowoc. Joy was born to Skylar Polenz and Mary Lou Polenz on the 16th day of November, 1949. She enjoyed working as a seamstress and as a nanny for many years, but mostly her name said it all, Joy, as she enjoyed spending time with her family and friends, and was certain to bring her Joy to all celebrations and holidays.

Joy is survived by her husband, Dale Stukel; children John Herreman, Brian (Michaela) Herreman, Rhianna (Jason) Harrison, Chantelle (Terry) Hansen, Mark (Debra) Stukel, Kimberly Stukel, Carrie (Joel) Siewert; brother, Dean Polenz; sisters, Judy Brennon and Jill Skotzke; brother- in-law, Ralph (Joyce) Stukel; 20 grandchildren, 11 great-grandchildren, and close friends Patty Bibb of Fresno, Calif., and Sue Tris Brooks of Dunedin, Fla.

Joy was preceded in death by her parents, and brothers Richard and Douglas Polenz.

The family of Joy wishes to extend our sincere thanks to the amazing staff at Waukesha Memorial Hospital, ProHealth Cancer Center, AngelsGrace Hospice in Oconomowoc, and Dr. Raza.

A celebration of life is being planned to take place this summer.
