May 2, 1944 - March 20, 2021
Joyce Quinn, Passed away peacefully into the loving arms of our Lord on March 20, 2021 in Indianapolis, Indiana. Today we celebrate her life and homegoing. Joyce was born May 2, 1944 in Jonesboro, Arkansas to the late Dennis and Geraldine Ellis. Joyce was the eldest of three children and accepted Christ at an early age. She married Johnnie Quinn and moved to Niles, Michigan in the early 1960’s. Through their union three children were born, Ronnie Quinn, Kathy Quinn Collins and Johnnie Quinn, Jr. She was a very hard worker her entire life. She retired from AM General, Hummer Plant as a Quality Inspector in Mishawaka, Indiana. Prior to that, she was a Quality Inspector and Union Steward for United Technologies Automotive in Niles, Michigan. She enjoyed being a union steward where she fought for fair treatment of employees. Joyce also worked many years as a Pediatric Nursing Assistant at Pawating Hospital; and as a Pattern Folder at Simplicity Pattern in Niles, Michigan. Joyce modeled hard work, determination, and the importance of getting an education. She obtained an Associates Degree in Applied Science from Southwestern Michigan College, Dowagiac, MI; all while working full time and raising a family. She encouraged and expected her children to pursue higher education. Joyce loved the Lord and knew that he was the source of her strength and joy. She loved to laugh, and spend quality time with her family and friends. Joyce enjoyed a good fish fry, outdoor BBQ, working in her flowers beds, decorating, cooking, Motown music, dancing and filling the room with laughter. If you were feeling down, she would lift your spirits through the truth about your situation and advice on how to overcome and “Keep it Pushing!” Joyce loved her grandchildren and always encouraged them to be the best they could be. Thank you Mom for your endless love and support, you will always be our biggest cheerleader now and forever. Joyce was preceded in death by her parents, Dennis and Geraldine Ellis; and son, Johnnie Quinn, Jr. She is survived by her son, Ronnie Quinn; daughter, Kathy Quinn Collins (James); mother-in-law, Alma Miller; sister, Nancy Hampton; brother, Ken Tell; nephew, Herman Hampton; grandsons, Ronald Austin, Raasean Young, Taurean Young and Khari Stewart; and a host of great-grandchildren; great-nieces and great-nephews.
