Joyce Sickler Cosentino, 87, passed into the eternal March 28, 2020. She was born March 20, 1933, in Ogden, Utah.
Joyce served our country overseas with grace, charm and tenacity as the wife of a State Department Servant. Her heart was as kind as her determination was strong. She cared deeply for others and actively donated to Utah’s Huntsman Cancer Institute, Wounded Warriors, One More Chance Animal Rescue, Switchpoint Community Resource Center and many Catholic communities. She was a gifted fundraiser who listened and made you feel important, always remembering your name and something special about you. She lived in the service of God, the care of people and the fun in life which she generously shared with those around her.
Heaven has gained a very special angel to serve His wishes further. We will all miss her wisdom, honesty, laughter, quick wit and her feisty ways, and pray she watches over us and guides us to love one another more.
Joyce is preceded in death by her husband, Ralph, and son Steven Cosentino; her sisters Betty Gardener, Fae Evans, and Donna Rynhart; her brothers Dean Evans and Sidney Sickler Jr. and her parents Ilah Mae Dean and Sidney N Sickler Sr.
