    Joyce Marie Morin
    Of Hastings died Tuesday, October 19, 2021, following a courageous battle with Parkinson's at the Regina Assisted Living with the help of hospice. Joyce was eighty-one.
    She was known within her family as the Miracle Woman, just like her husband Arthur who had passed away in 2003. They both had gone through multiple health challenges. Her attitude, dedication to family and outlook on life pulled her through all those obstacles. Joyce's strength, grace and focus on creating life's great adventures for all those she loved are an inspiration to all of us.

    She wore many hats, she was the Kool-Aid mom on the block, a scout leader, active in PTA, a religion teacher and later co-ran a business, while being active in the Welcome Wagon and Daughters of Isabella. She was in many leagues such as bowling, golf and volleyball while keeping active with tennis and of course kicking up her heels to show everyone she should have been in the Rockettes. She firmly believed to live life, you had to be in shape for it. She also enjoyed gardening (especially her apple trees), photography, travel and of course making every holiday and family event larger than life.

    She was born November 24, 1939, in Clifton Illinois, the daughter of Earl and Mabel Warmbir. She graduated from Clifton High School. Shortly after graduation she met Arthur Morin who would become her husband. They were married August 15, 1959, in Clifton Illinois.

    She is survived by her children Michael Joseph Morin of Wayzata, MN, Michelle "Shelly" Marie (Scott) Schmitz of Hastings, MN and Art's son, Arthur Joseph (Lee) Morin III; grandchildren, Jacki (Jason) Bauer, Bobby (Tera Dornfeld) Schmitz, Amelia (Brian) Regenscheid, Aaron Morin and Alesha Morin, Sarina Penders and Kyle Penders; great grandchildren, Wally Bauer, Ruby Joyce Bauer, Eddie Regenscheid and Linus Schmitz and 13 nieces and nephews.

    Joyce was preceded in death by her parents, her brothers Donald and Terry Warmbir and her husband (the love of her life) Arthur.

    Funeral Services have been postponed until further notice.
