Blue Earth Joyce A. Fuchs, age 70, of Blue Earth, died Sunday, Feb. 2, 2014, at St. Luke’s Lutheran Care Center.

Funeral Services were held on Feb. 7, 2014, at St. Paul Lutheran Church, in Blue Earth. The Rev. Wesley Hafner officiated. Burial was in Riverside Cemetery, Blue Earth. Patton Funeral Home & Cremation Service was in charge of arrangements.

She was born Nov. 2, 1943, in Winnebago, the daughter of Earl and Jessie (Dennis) Pettit. She graduated from Winnebago High School in 1961. She married Randy L. Fuchs on Nov. 17, 1973, in Winnebago.

Joyce spent most of her life helping her husband with the work on their dairy farm. She helped with bailing hay, walking beans, lawn care, house work, and three meals a day for her family. Sundays were family days and most of all she enjoyed spending time with them.

The past 10 years Joyce and Randy had many adventures away from the farm, visiting friends, site seeing and shopping. Together they rode on the Harley or in the Mustang where ever the road would take them.

She is survived by her husband, Randy Fuchs, of Blue Earth; son, Damon (Pamela) Larson, of Louisiana; daughters, Stacy (Adam) Hearn, of Blue Earth, and Shawn Fuchs, of Blue Earth; brothers, Donald (Carol) Pettit, of Lake Butler, and Raymond (Judy) Pettit, of Lake Butler; and sister, June (Glen) Domes, of Matheson, Colo.
