Joyce Galbreath

January 6, 1945 — June 29, 2023

On Thursday, June 29, 2023, Joyce Elaine Galbreath, age 78, passed away peacefully with her loved ones by her side.

Joyce was born on January 6, 1945. She was the daughter of Harold and Mary (Seamars) Heinzlemann of Milwaukee. Joyce grew up in Waukesha with her beloved aunt Shirley and uncle Ray Weber and family. Joyce was a graduate of WCTC with a degree in Hotel and Restaurant Management. She went on to manage many different restaurants including: KFC, Denny's, Hardee's, and Pizza Hut. In fact some of her grandchildren called her "Grandma Pizza Hut".

She was an animal lover her whole life, most recently to Tango and Tinkerbell, her beloved fur babies. She adored spending time with and playing board and card games with her family. She was a murder mystery buff. She shared her love of movies, old and new with the whole family. She was and always will be a die hard Packer fan. She could talk your ear off about anything in the NFL. She loved butterflies and unicorns and her favorite color was purple. She will be missed by everyone.

Joyce is survived by her daughter: Valerie Colson of Waupaca and son: Todd Pittman (Angel) of Waupaca; 18 grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren.

Joyce will join her daughter Terri (Colson) Lauer of Waupaca, her sons: Scott Colson of Marinette and Tracy Pittman of Waupaca, and granddaughter, Brianna Klettke of Waukesha, in heaven.

There will be a Celebration of Life in the near future.

We would like to thank all the family and friends for their love and support.
