Joyce Kay Kile, 71, a resident of Parkville, MO, formerly of Rochester HIlls, MI, Claremont, CA, and St. Mary’s, OH, passed away November 16, 2022. She was born September 5, 1951 in Lima, OH to Walter and Marjorie (Hotz) Beining.
Joyce married her high school sweetheart Daniel Lee Kile on May 18, 1973. Together for more than 50 years, they raised three children, Daniel Lee Kile, Jr. of Brooklyn, NY, Jenna Kay Kile of Denver, CO and Lindzay Day Kile of Brooklyn, NY. Joyce graduated from St. Mary’s High School and earned a BS in Elementary Education from Bowling Green State University. She taught primary school for five years in Akron and Chicago, and her most important job was as a loving mom and wife. Joyce loved to travel and was never happier than at the beach or visiting one of her favorite vineyards. She enjoyed playing tennis, baking cookies, watching football, visiting her kids and granddogs, celebrating Christmas—and a well-made Manhattan.
Joyce is survived by her husband and three children, as well as ten of her eleven siblings and dozens of nieces and nephews.
The family requests privacy at this time and asks that in lieu of gifts donations be made in Joyce’s name to the American Heart Association.
A memorial service celebrating Joyce will be held at a later date. Memories of Joyce and condolences to the family may be shared at meyersfuneralchapel.com.
