Life Story / Obituary


Joyce L. Knoll, age 85 of Holland, passed away October 2, 2020 at Rest Haven Care Center following a long battle with Alzheimer's.

Joyce married Ben Knoll and had 65 years of adventures with him. Her family was by her side as she peacefully left us. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother and friend to all who knew her. She raised 5 children; Sheila Whitaker (Eric), Mike Knoll (Lisa), Karen Moored (Dave), Kevin Knoll (passed in 2004), and Heather Knoll (Marcel Rivera); grandchildren, Kyle and Shelby Moored, and Nick and Justin Knoll. She spent many years as the homemaker and then went to work for Planters Lifesavers for 12 years. She retired and enjoyed day trips up north and time with family cooking, gardening and singing along to music she enjoyed.

Our family would like to thank the staff at Resthaven that provided care and love for her and our family. It was a long journey and we are thankful they were there for us.

A private family graveside service will take place at a later date. In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation to the Alzheimer's Association, or to Resthaven Care Center.
