Joy Lou Weber, 79, of Boise, Idaho, passed away peacefully in her home on January 11, 2020 due to natural causes. Joy was born in Frederick, Illinois on July 21, 1940 to Macel Clements and Alfred Stemp. Joy graduated from Salinas High School in Salinas, CA.
Joy married David Weber in Phoenix, AZ on August 17, 1962, beginning a journey of 57 ½ years. Joy made her mark as a self-employed seamstress, making clothes for herself, her family, and for others. She enjoyed sewing, caring for her children and grandchildren, making ceramics, baking, wood-burning, gardening, and making clocks. These hobbies kept her busy through the many states she lived in throughout her life.
Joy is survived by her husband (David Weber), her 5 five children (Debbie, Amy, Tracey, Roxanne, and Stuart), her 7 grandchildren (Kimberly, Tiffany, Kristin, David, Stephanie, Scott, and Dilon), and her siblings (Judy, Sue, and Art).
Joy was a bright and charitable spirit, never seen without a smile on her face. There are many things we wish we could share with her, though we know she is watching over all of us with love. We love you and miss you dearly.
Sent with love by Judy Brooks:
God saw she was getting tired, and a cure was not to be, so He put His arms around her and whispered, “come with me.”
With tearful eyes we watched her suffer and watched her fade away. Although we loved her dearly, we could not make her stay.
A golden heart stopped beating, hardworking hands were laid to rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us He only takes the best.
Sent with love by David Weber, written by Tiffany Weber:
57 ½ years was not enough, but you are home now, and I will be tough. I’ll live for you however I can, until we can be together again.
My dear Angel, enjoy your wings. God bless your heart; I hope it sings. When we meet again at God’s gate, we will know for certain of our fate.
I’ll love you always, please know this. I’ll yearn forever for our next kiss.
Joy, you are gone by never forgotten. Rest in peace, sweetheart.
A special thanks to Janice Elliott, Emma Robbins, and Keystone Hospice for helping Joy in her final days. It was beautiful to see how much love could be shared for such a special woman.
