Joyce Lien

June 29, 1938 — December 29, 2022

Joyce E. Lien of Token Creek, WI, passed away Thursday, December 29, 2022 peacefully at the Waunakee Manor.  Joyce was born on June 29, 1938, the daughter of Theodore and Evelyn (Olson) Nelson in Token Creek, WI.  Joyce graduated from Sun Prairie High School.

Joyce is survived by her two sons, Dean (Debra) Carpenter, and Dennis (Meegan) Carpenter; a grandson Andrew Zeasman; sister, Jean Kreger; brothers-in-law, Richard Seltzner and Michael Dauk; sisters-in-law, Carol Nelson, Sandy Nelson, Gloria (Tom) Rortvedt, Bonnie Lynch and Darlene Tjujum.  She was preceded in death by her parents, husband Darrell Lien, grandson Scott Zeasman, brothers, Jerome and James Nelson; sisters, Joann Seltzner and Janice Nelson; sister-in­­-law, Barbara Dauk; and brothers-in-law, Bob Lynch and George Kreger.

Joyce was an avid Packer, Badger, and Brewer fan.  She was well known for her game day outfits, including hats for every occasion.  Joyce shared her passion for flowers with her customers when she owned and operated Joyce’s Flowers and Buds.  Her passion for decorating included the inside and outside of her home.  The glow of holiday lights could be seen as you drove up her street.  So many memories of golf outings, snowmobiling, card tournaments, family gatherings, trips and spirited conversations.
