Joyce C. Klatt, 77, of Wausau died Wednesday, August 3 2022 at Aspirus Wausau Hospital.
She was born December 29, 1944 in the town of Frankfort, WI to the late Ernest and Bertha (Passehl) Weyneth. She was united in marriage on September 4 1965 to the late Ronald L. Klatt in Pine City, MN.
Joyce will be remembered for her quiet and kind nature, as she appreciated watching Ronald “Butch” steal the show with his laughter and outgoing disposition. Together they took on business ventures such as their 6th Street Ceramic Shop and Ginseng farming, but more importantly her greatest joy was being a homemaker and devoting her time to her family. She enjoyed going up to their permanent campground site in Rhinelander WI with day trips to the casino, working in her flower gardens, and yearly visits to the Wisconsin Valley Fair watching her grandchildren enjoy the day. Her happiest moments were simply spending time or having a nice chat on the phone with family and friends. She was looking forward to meeting her new great granddaughter.
Survivors include her three daughters, Sherry (Roger) Nordquist of Wausau WI, Patty (Mark) Huhtala of Marinette WI, Linda Klatt of Wausau WI, four grandchildren, Heidi (Colton) Delorraine, Dylan Huhtala, Hannah Nordquist, Hailey Nordquist, and one great granddaughter Addison Delorraine. Two brothers Ernest (Barbara) Weyneth, Oak Forest IL, and Winston “Winnie” Weyneth, Wausau WI, sister Delores Vesel, Sterling IL, and one sister-in-law Lorraine Klatt of Stratford WI.
Joyce was preceded in death by her husband Ronald Klatt, parents Ernest and Bertha Weyneth, and brother Gene Weyneth.
Memorial services will be held on Sunday, August 14 2022 at Mount Olive Lutheran Church, 6205 Alderson St. Weston. Pastor Mike Fox will officiate. Visitation will be held from 2 pm to 4pm with the service to follow.
