Joyce Elaine McLouth, age 78, of Lansing, Michigan passed away on Wednesday, February 10, 2021. Joyce was born May 7, 1942 in Lansing, Michigan to Ralph and Gladys (Kelley) Abbott.

She is preceded in death by her parents; husband, David Reynolds; brothers, Harold, Ernie, Raymond, Fred, and Dewaine; and sisters, Ruth, Laura, Mable, Hattie, and Wanda.

Joyce loved her family so much. She was proud to be a stay at home mom and she took great care of her children, grandchildren, great- grandchildren and great-great- grandchild. When her children were at home, Joyce would gather them around the table to play either poker or Yahtzee with them. When Joyce's children grew up and had families of their own, she continued her tradition of playing poker or Yahtzee around the table with all of her grandchildren. When she had her family around her, you knew Joyce was in her happy place.

Any one that knew Joyce knew that she loved her babies and bingo. Her love for babies and bingo definitely was one of the top 5 things she loved in life. Joyce was known to scratch off a few lotto tickets now and then as well. If the weather was nice, you could find her sitting on her deck enjoying a cup of coffee and listening to the birds or just playing a hand held video game like solitaire.

One of Joyce's favorite season was fall. Joyce enjoyed the beauty of the leaves when they would change into their fall colors. Sometimes she would hop in her car, drive around and admire nature's beauty.

There is something else that happens around fall time and that is MSU Football. Joyce loved her Spartans. It was a tradition for her and her grandson to watch the games together. When MSU scored, Joyce and her grandson would cheer and root for ol' Sparty.

Joyce has a gift of making blankets. Throughout the years, she made blankets for her friends and family. It was a special gift that she could bestow upon you, her handmade blanket.

Left to cherish her memory are daughter, Candi (Roger) Sherman; sons, Mark (Scheryl) McLouth, Randy (Tina) McLouth and William McLouth; grandchildren, Christi, Jeffrey, Christopher, Matthew, Todd, Randy Jr, Dana, Daniel, Angel, Heather and Whitney; 18 great-grandchildren; 1 great-great-grandchild; and many nieces, nephews, and friends.

Visitation will be held on Tuesday, February 16, 2021 from 2-4 and 6-8 at Tiffany Funeral Home, 3232 West Saginaw Street, Lansing, Michigan 48917. Funeral service will be on Wednesday, February 17, 2021 at 11:00 a.m. with a one hour prior visitation at the funeral home.

I remember when we used to live with grandma on christopher st. When it was cold outside all us grandkids. (Christopher dusty ashlynn and me) we would run up to her room and make hot coco with her. We would sit on her bed with the hot coco and watch price is right. As are midnight snack she would ask about getting a ice cream hot fudge from McDonald's or me and her would share a orange and salt. We love you grandma. I hope you are looking down on us. ❤

I can still hear the sound of the dice hitting the table and the laughter when my mom (Ruth Abbott Pine) and Aunt Joyce would sit up late at night playing Yahtzee when we lived next to each other. They were so much alike!
Loved them both and I’m happy they are all together again even though they are all missed here on earth.
