Joyce Landewee Obituary

Joyce Landewee, 70, of Leopold, MO passed away January 18, 2024. She was born August 8, 1953, daughter of Leo and Agnes (Jansen) Broshuis. She met the love of her life, Paul Landewee, at six years old at Leopold School, where he proposed to her at the water fountain. They were married September 30, 1972, and she was his beautiful bride for 51 years. 

She is survived by her children, Michelle (Erik) Sefton and Donnie (Laura) Landewee and 8 grandchildren: Paul Dorman, Lucy Dorman, Delaney Stricker, Maicol Sefton, Karol Sefton, Samuel Landewee, Autumn Landewee, and Amelia Landewee. 

She is also survived by her brothers, John Dale (Debby) Broshuis, Russell (Rhonda) Broshuis, Roy (Phyllis) Broshuis, Rick (Beverly) Broshuis, Lloyd (Tammy) Broshuis, and numerous nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents, brother Randy Broshuis, and son Jeremey Landewee.


Joyce’s name was truly fitting, as she was full of joy though she had much pain during her life.  She greeted everyone she met with a quick smile, and she prayed for so many people in her lifetime.  She also had great love for Jesus and helping children, teaching religion class to 2nd graders for 16 years.  She served as a camp counselor at Camp ReNewAll, PTO president at school, and a member of Ladies’ Sodality at her church.  She was selfless and would sacrifice for others, especially her family.  Joyce held various jobs in her life, but her most prized vocations were stay at home mom and grandmother.  She loved all her children and grandchildren fiercely yet with patience and kindness.  She always had wise advice for those who were struggling.  She loved listening to music, especially Elvis and Michael Bublé.  Anyone who knew Joyce knew she had a green thumb and loved all her rose bushes and flowers she worked hard to nurture.  She also loved watching birds outside.  She was a bright light to all who were in her life.
