Joyce J. Bachelder

| June 6, 2023

Joyce J. Bachelder of Coshocton passed away June 2, 2023.  Joyce and Lester were married 71 years.  They had 3 children, 7 grandchildren and 8 great grandchildren.

Joyce was a very caring, loving and nurturing person.  She was involved in many church projects and activities.  She supported the community of Coshocton by being a board member of multiple service organizations and volunteering.  Joyce was a proud volunteer for Hospice of Coshocton for over 35 years.

Joyce was employed by Dr. Johnson & Dr. Wright/Family Physicians for over 30 years.  She immensely enjoyed her job and it is proof of the care she gave as people still mention her and relay to her family how much they appreciated her kindness and gentle care even after all of this time.

She will be greatly missed but joyfully received by all her family and friends in heaven.

A private family service will be held at a later date.

A heartfelt thanks to Crossroads Hospice for their excellent care of Mom and us.  Also, thank you to Claymont Health and Rehab Center for the excellent care of Joyce in her final months.

The Free Funeral Home is handling the arrangements.  Online condolences may be made at
