Joyce Lee (Fideler) Winckler, 79, Viborg met her Lord and Savior on Friday, November 21, 2014 at Pioneer Memorial Hospital in Viborg. 
Visitation will be 3pm-7pm with prayer service at 7pm on Tuesday, November 25 at Goglin Funeral Home, Tripp.  Celebration of Life services will be at 10:30am on Wednesday, November 26 at Friedens Reformed Church in Tripp, with Rev. Greg Way officiating.  Interment will be in the Immanuel Reformed Cemetery, rural Tripp.  Pallbearers are Jerry Lukkes, Jason Winckler, Casey Berndt, Cole Winckler, Brandon Winckler and Logan Slack. 
Joyce Winckler was born March 31, 1935 in rural Delmont, SD to William and Rose (Vilhauer) Fideler.  She graduated from Delmont High School in 1953.  She then went on to pursue her teaching certificate and taught in rural school. 
She married Clio Winckler on June 6, 1954 in Delmont.  They lived in Avon for a short time, then moved to Springfield in 1955 where they ran the linotype for the local newspapers.  Later they moved to rural Springfield where they started their family.  In 1963 they moved to rural Tripp where they raised their family of seven children.  Around 1985, she became a Certified Nursing Assistant at the Tyndall Good Samaritan Center, which she thoroughly enjoyed until her health did not allow.  She moved to Viborg after Clio’s passing in 2001, where she has resided until her death.
Some of her favorite past times were family gatherings, reunions, Bible studies, playing cards, attending events of all kinds for her grand- and great-grand-children and travelling.
Grateful for sharing her life are her seven children;  Rick (Deb) Winckler, Lawn TX; Kim (Greg) Berndt of Tyndall; Pam Lukkes, Sioux Falls; Scott (Teresa) Winckler, Yankton; Jodie (Mitch) Jensen, Lennox; Joe (Rebecca) Winckler, Powhattan, KS; Shelley (Gary) DeJong, Viborg; 16 grandchildren, 20 great-grandchildren, and two sisters; Eileen Coisman, Ipswich and Rosetta Slaba, Yankton.
She was preceded in death by her husband, her parents and one brother, Wilbur “Sonny” Fideler.

Shelly, praying for you and your family. What a wonderful lady! As I sit at my desk each day I have a gift I received from you during our DTG days. Your handy work with the book mark and the message has helped me stay focused through many work and family issues. I will close with that message; "The Lord Bless Thee and Keep Thee". Take Care, Swenys

Shelley, Lexi & Logan CoCo and I send our condolences and prayers in the passing of your mom and grandmother Joyce. I always enjoyed her so very much and was appreciative of all the ways that she supported the ministries of Viborg UMC! She will be missed by many friends and family. God's peace for you in this time of grief. Mark & CoCo Gronseth
