Joyce M. Treffinger died peacefully July 9th at the age of 92. A long-time resident of southeast Denver, Joyce lived the past five years at St. Andrews Village, in Aurora. She was preceded in death by her husband, Theodore, and her son, Richard. Her daughters, Karen Kronauer of Niwot, Colorado, and Cynthia Jones of Edmonds, Washington survive her.

Joyce was the daughter of Everett and Florence Mickle. She and her brother Deane were born and raised in Williamsville, Illinois. After attending Blackburn College and completing an RN degree from Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri, Joyce relocated to Denver, where she worked as a public health nurse for many years.

Shortly after her move to Denver, Joyce met her husband Ted through the Bachelors and Belles young adult group at Montview Boulevard Presbyterian Church, where they were married in 1957 and were active members for more than six decades, supporting the church’s work to serve the community in a number of capacities.

Joyce and Ted were dedicated to their family and shared a love of the outdoors. Weekends were filled with hiking and camping trips in their pop-up trailer throughout Colorado and the western United States. An avid hiker, Joyce organized and led a women’s hiking group on weekly forays into the Colorado foothills and Front Range region every Tuesday for more than 30 years.

Joyce’s love for her family, commitment to social justice and volunteerism, and enjoyment of nature defined her life and relationships.

Memorial services are planned for September 6, 2019, at 1:00 p.m. in the Barrett Chapel of Montview Boulevard Presbyterian Church, 1980 Dahlia St., Denver.
