AzPA sends condolences to family and friends of Joyce Maureen Kossick

from AzPA

Joyce Maureen Kossick passed away surrounded by her family on Tuesday, Feb. 21, 2017 at the age of 62 in Phoenix, Arizona. Kossick is preceded in death by her father, John "Jack" Kossick, and her mother, Kathryn Kossick. She is survived by her two children, Gear (Chelsey) Misner and Zeke (fiance Cori) Misner; her granddaughter, Reagan Misner; her significant other, Art Shedlock; her three sisters, Joann (Fred) Wille, MaryAnn (Sam) Foco, and Jeanette (Ed) Burbank; and her two brothers, Don (Karen) Kossick and Jim (Marge) Kossick; as well as her many nieces and nephews.

Kossick grew up in a loving family in the small town of Pinconning, Michigan. She was the youngest of six children. Kossick graduated from Ferris State University with a degree in Pharmacy and built an unprecedented career in Phoenix. Her career included working at the Arizona State Board of Pharmacy, the Arizona Board of Osteopathic Examiners, and Maricopa Integrated Health Systems where she finished her career as the Director of Pharmacy.

Her biggest accomplishments did not come from behind a desk, but as a mother, grandmother, sister and friend. She was the most caring, helpful and motivating individual there was. Kossick loved spending time with her boys and watching them grow into men, cheering for University of Michigan football, eating Pinconning cheese and pickled bologna, lending an ear to those that needed to talk, reminiscing about her amazing childhood, golfing with her friends, and babysitting her granddaughter. A memorial service will be held at 3 p.m. on Saturday, March 4, at Hansen Chapel, 8314 N. 7th Street, Phoenix 85020. Donations may be made to the American Heart Association.
