It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our sweet sister, Joyce Witbeck. She returned home to her Heavenly Father unexpectedly on November 6, 2017. Joyce was born on September 3, 1954 to Wallace and Beverly Jean Steele Witbeck in Salt Lake City, Utah.

She attended Brighton High School and Salt Lake Community College. She retired from the State of Utah, Department of Workforce Services where she was a computer programmer. She then served a service mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, where she gained a love for indexing. She had many interests including reading, crocheting blankets for her family, and donated many blankets to hospitals around Utah. She enjoyed spending time with her family and close friends, who she affectionately called "The Gang." She travelled extensively and enjoyed making new friends on her adventures.

Survived by her sisters, Deborah (Steve) and Lorraine (Clark), nieces and nephews, Josh & Kellie, Stephanie & Jordan, Emily, and Sarah, and grandnieces Averie, Brenleigh, Addison, and Sophia. Preceded in death by her parents and brother, Craig.
