There will be a brief memorial service for Joyce Fliehler at United Methodist Church, 102 S. 8th St, Estherville, IA 51334, on Sunday, August 16, 2015, at 1:30 pm. This service will be followed by a luncheon. Joyce passed away August 16, 2014 in Amarillo, TX, but due to the distance many friends and family were unable to attend her funeral there.
Joyce, her husband Karl, and their children Karla and Jarrett were members of First Presbyterian Church in Spirit Lake for several years before moving to Amarillo in 1985.
