March 11, 1942 — May 12, 2024


Joyce L. Pisarcik, 82, of Rossiter, ran into the loving arms of her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, on Sunday morning, May 12, 2024.

She was born on March 11, 1942 to Noah Paul and Ellen (Miller) Stahlman 

Joyce was loved by all who knew her. She was a shining light when she entered a room, spreading joy and warmth wherever she went. She showed and shared her love of Jesus to everyone she met, radiating a sense of peace and contentment. She had a passion for life and enjoyed expressing herself through various forms of creative expression, including on-stage performances while on vacations. Her vibrant smile and infectious laughter had the power to light up a room and bring people together.

Joyce was a member of New Beginnings Church in Punxsutawney. She worked several jobs in the area but was most known as being the greeter at Walmart. She worked at Walmart the day it opened and retired after working there for 10 years. She loved spending time and taking care of her family. She loved leading and teaching VBS to the children in the Rossiter area about how much Jesus loved them. She will always be the light in our lives and missed greatly.
