Joyce Ann Nimocks, the heart, and soul of our family passed away Saturday, May 6, 2023, at Mercy Tiffin Hospital after a long courageous battle against lung cancer. She was 57 years old.
Joyce was born November 25, 1965, to the late Ronald and Betty (Crawford) Green in Cumberland, Maryland. She attended Tiffin Columbian High School and later received her GED. Joyce married Joseph Rochester in 1982 and they later divorced. She found the love of her life, her “daddyo”, Dirk Nimocks in 1997. They were married on October 20, 2007 and he survives at home in Tiffin.
Joyce was a hardworking woman and devoted over 34 years to Fry Foods in Tiffin. She was the mom that friends growing up called “mom.” She would treat her children’s friends as if they were her own. Joyce enjoyed many hobbies in her free time, demolition derbies, Cleveland Indians games, bowling and shopping, just to name a few, but those just scratched the surface of this amazing woman. Her most enjoyable times were spent with her husband, her children and grandchildren. The surprise pop over’s from her kids and weekends slumber parties with her grandkids were amongst her favorites. She was also the event planner, coordinating every family gathering and making sure it was perfect.
She is survived by her husband, Dirk, her in-laws; George and Barb Nimocks of Texas, three siblings, Mark (Elrem) Green of Allen, TX, Timothy Green of Tiffin and Melissa Green of Findlay, five amazing children, Bradlee (Kristine) Rochester of Tiffin, Brittney Rochester of Tiffin, Breanna (Wayne Burns) Rochester of Tiffin, Paige (Ben) Hart of Leipsic, and Lacy (Ryan) Rathburn of Tiffin, her fur baby, Remi, and her fourteen most prized possessions, her grandchildren, Alexzander, Brookelynne, Cayden, Anthony, Adeline, Aliyana, Peyton, Bentlee, Austin, Meghan, Braelynn, Hunter, Tyson and Garrett. She is also survived by many nieces and nephews.
Joyce was preceded in death by her parents, two infant daughters, Carrie and Stephanie Rochester.
She was our “mommyo,” mom, and mawmaw. She will forever be held deeply in our hearts. Life will never be the same without her gracious candor and beautiful smile.
