Joyce Albrecht Wagner


Joyce Albrecht Wagner passed away peacefully from this life on December 25, 2017 in Yuma, Arizona, with her loving daughter by her side.  She, along with her twin sister, was born on August 17, 1951in Milford, Utah to Sheldon R. and Mary Reese Albrecht. The twins were the first grandchildren of David & Lucy Reese.

In 1956, Dad’s employment with the railroad moved the family to California and Joyce attended William Orr Elementary in Norwalk.  In September of 1961, the family was able to move back to Milford where Joyce was raised and educated, graduating from Milford High School in 1969.  She married Wayne Morrow, later divorced.  From that union she was blessed with her daughter, Linda Colene, who she loved and cherished dearly.

Joyce had a long, enjoyable career with the federal government, working at Hill Air Force Base in Utah, then moving to Yuma, Arizona in 1996 to work at the Marine Corps Air Station until her retirement in 2011.

Joyce always had a soft spot in her heart for animals, especially dogs.  She loved country-western music and was always seen wearing her perfectly pressed & creased blue jeans and cowboy boots.  Everyone who knew & loved Joyce will miss her dearly.

She is survived by her daughter; mother; twin sister, Janyce (Alan) Syndergaard, Taylorsville, UT; brother, Robert Albrecht, Kingman, AZ; sister, Julie (Dave) Olearain, Cedar City, UT; and sister, Carol (Barney) Thompson, Milford, UT.  Preceded in death by her father and grandparents.  A service will be held in Milford, Utah at a date yet to be determined.
