OBITUARY

Joyce Ann Foulkrod

May 19, 1959July 27, 2020

Joyce Ann (Nix) Foulkrod passed away unexpectedly on July 27, 2020 at the age of 61. She is survived by her children; Allison Foulkrod and her daughter Abbigayle Young, Adam (Samantha) Foulkrod, David (Jessica) Foulkrod and their children Elgin and Adaline Foulkrod, sisters; Rita Burch and Linda Ramey. She was a friend to many, a mother figure to others, and a generous and gracious soul to everyone she met. Her loss is deeply felt throughout the community of Medicine Lodge, Kansas. Despite the tragic loss, we honor her by remembering her life story. She was born May 19, 1959 to Homer and Iva (Florence) Nix. She began her life on the family farm near Hugoton before eventually moving into town. She maintained her farm girl work ethic throughout her entire life. She cared for community members in Hugoton through babysitting and working as a CNA before marrying William Foulkrod and moving to Medicine Lodge in 1983. She then began a family that extended far beyond her own children. Many considered her as their own mother and grandmother. She volunteered in blood drives, voting polls, and in any other way needed. She was knowledgeable in all aspects of home improvement and took pride in her work. She was especially happy to receive compliments on the quality of her projects. She also spent as much time as possible with her grandchildren. Her three grandchildren were truly the light of her life. She helped strangers as earnestly as she helped friends. She was an avid Chiefs football fan (Super Bowl champs 2020!). She was a devout Christian and is undoubtedly now with Jesus. We believe in her final moments that she reached out to her Lord and Savior. She will be remembered as a kind and loving woman by all who knew her. Cremation has taken place. A Celebration of Life service will be held in her honor at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, August 1, 2020 at the First Christian Church, 300 S. Main St. in Medicine Lodge, Kansas.

JOYCE WAS SUCH A WONDERFUL YOUNG WOMAN. SHE WAS IN MY DAUGHTER SANDY'S CLASS AT HUGOTON SCHOOLS. I MOVED TO MEDICINE LODGE IN 1987 AND RAN INTO HER AT A STORE THERE. SHE WAS SO HAPPY TO SEE ME. SHE LIVED ACROSS THE STREET FROM MY SON, WHO MOVED MANY YEARS AGO. SHE ALWAYS HAD THIS SMILE, JUST LIKE HER MOTHER. WE VISITED MANY TIMES. SHE WAS ALWAYS GLAD TO SEE ME. AGE MADE NO DIFFERENCE TO HER. I WAS HER FRIEND. I MOVED FROM MEDICNE LODGE IN 1983 AND HAVEN'T SEEN HER SINCE BUT SHE WILL FOREVER BE IN MY MEMORIES. I LOVE YOU JOYCE. YOU WILL BE MISSED BY MANY. MY DEEPEST SYMPHATHY TO HER FAMILY OF CHILDEN AND TO RITA AND LINDA.

If you knew Joyce there is nothing that need be said.
But I will say that my life was blessed by her presence, ty Joyce.
Joyce is one of, if not the most, beautiful Souls that I have encountered on this walk we call life. Joyce and I shared at least 4 passions; faith, family, home improvement, and online poker ps i don't like indoor cats. I believe her love of cats might have been due to her childhood chore of caring for the livestock especially her rabbits, what child doesn't love bunnies, but at some point her rabbits ended up on the dining room table enough said except she never mentioned that part. Lovingly her Father "daddy" raised her to be the strong woman we all were blessed by. When Joyce had a harsh word for me, very few, I had it coming and it was as tender as possible, most of the time she bit her tongue and took it in stride, guiding me by example!

my memories of Joyce remind me that I must forgive as I wish to be forgiven.

I am confident that Joyce never felt the pain of death but instead the Joy of her heavenly Father reuniting her with her "daddy"

Joyce was the first person I met when I first visited Medicine lodge. That was 29 years ago. She was an amazing woman. Strong and brave. Anything she did came from her heart. We used to share and compare stories with my son Daniel and her son David when they were very young. She always made me feel welcome and a part of her family. You'll be missed Joyce.

Joyce, Doris and I went shopping together before Christmas. "3 muskateerettes". Joyce also taught our children in Sunday School and helped us out when we needed an emergency babysitter while doing foster care.
Our son used to iritate Joyce during Sunday school by doodling during the lesson, but he was always able to answer her quiz questions and she thought he wasn't paying attention.
Jesus welcomed His servant home. We may not understand why, but God was not surprised. He said "Welcome home Sis".

Joyce was a beautiful soul. She was so kind and always happy. She was always willing to help others, and did so with a smile. She was so very proud of her children and grandchildren. I never talked to her that I didn't get an update on all of them. I was privileged to have known her and will miss her sweet smile.

She was a wonderful woman, full of the beauty of the Lord. She will be greatly missed on this side and we can’t wait to celebrate with her in heaven. Our prayers are with the family and we send the peace of God to all whom she loved and loved her.

Joyce was one of my dearest friends. She never denied me help no matter the day or hour. She was a true Christian that not only believed in God's word she lived it. Her kindness and love will never be forgotten. I will truly miss my friend forever.
