Joan Kathryn Fugiel
Joan Kathryn Fugiel, age 60, of Branson, Missouri, passed away May 1, 2021. She entered this life May 13, 1960, in Lombard, Illinois, the daughter of George and Bernice (Hartigan) Slaby. Her parents and a brother, Richard Slaby, have preceded her in death.
With a heart for others, Joan dedicated many years to her work with seniors in assisted living. At home, she took special care of her tomatoes and peppers in her little garden. Whether warm sunny days on the deck or chilly days by the fire pit, Joan loved time relaxing with her dog, Lou. Family and friends will have an emptiness and longing where her life once resided. May sweet memories be cherished for many years.
Joan is survived by her two sons: Warren Fugiel of Sugar Grove, Illinois, and Rob Fugiel of South Elgin, Illinois; brother, Kenneth Slaby of Green Bay, Wisconsin; and sister, Nancy Twitty of Branson, Missouri.
A celebration of life is being planned for a later time. Arrangements and cremation are under the direction of Cremations of the Ozarks. To leave an online condolence, please visit www.cremationsoftheozarks.com.
