Joy A. "J.J." Neuy, nee Schneider, of West Bend, passed away Wednesday, June 7, 2006 at her residence, surrounded by her family.

Joy was born Jan. 26, 1949 to William P. and Lillian R. (nee Roxbury) Schneider in West Bend.

She was raised in the Milwau-kee area, and in 1963 their family settled in Jackson.

When she was 14, she met Kenneth D. Neuy. Since that time, the two of them had an inseparable bond of friendship.

On Dec. 4, 1976, Kenneth and Joy devoted their love and their lives to one another at Trinity Lutheran Church in West Bend.

After marriage, the couple lived in West Bend, and moved several times, including to Adams Friendship in 1989, five years in Eagle River and settling back in West Bend in 1994.

Joy worked at several restaurants in the West Bend area, including Round the Clock for five years and Copper Penny.

In her free time, Joy enjoyed collecting dolls, sewing, playing poker and playing on the computer. "She was the world’s greatest bargain hunter on Ebay."

Her favorite thing to do was going for coffee every morning at 7:30.
