DeGroot, Joan J. Joan J. DeGroot, 61, De Pere, was welcomed into heaven with open arms on March 2, 2007, as the result of a motor vehicle accident involving their RV. She was born Sept. 12, 1945, to Joyce (Amundson) and the late Joseph Nockerts. She was a 1965 graduate of Green Bay West High School. On June 10, 1983, she married her soul mate, Lawrence DeGroot. Joan and Larry enjoyed everything together. They were one not two. First and foremost, Joan enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren. Grandma and Grandpas garden was a place the kids learned to grow their own pumpkins for carving and strawberries for jam and pies. Grandma was there to cheer on every soccer game, softball game, swim practice and chorus concerts. When needed, she was also there to kiss sore knees and help take down fevers. Grandma made the best blankets, hats, scarfs and mittens with a hug in each of them. For the past six years at Christmas, she spent Saturday mornings ringing the bells for the red kettles of the Salvation Army. Joan had a love for the outdoors. She enjoyed camping, fishing and traveling in their motorhome. Joan and Larry spent a great deal of time gardening and spending time in the yard. She valued her many friendships and playing card games, Friday fish frys and "going out for a sandwich" with friends were always favorite things to do. Joan was always the first to offer assistance and the last to leave the event after she had everything cleaned up and taken care of. She always made enough for everyone to enjoy the "left overs." Joan enjoyed making afghans, embroidering quilts and "Swedish weaving" blanks and was proud to teach a class on Swedish weaving this winter while in Myrtle Beach. She always enjoyed finding a good deal at a yard sale. Joan never wanted to just sit idle and always had a project in the works. She was an avid Packer fan and loved her Favre-y.
Joan is survived by her ever-loving and devoted husband, Lawrence; her daughters and sons-in-law, Tammy and Thomas Stoffel, De Pere; and Kerry and Donald Spencer, Green Bay; her stepdaughter, Jennifer DeGroot, Arizona; her "heart and soul," her grandchildren, Allison and Madison Stoffel, De Pere; and Keanna, Maurice and Malik Spencer, Green Bay; her mother, Joyce Nockerts; sister, Sharon Jarvis; brother, Bob (Sue) Nockerts; mother-in-law, Louisa DeGroot; brothers and sisters-in-law, Mary (Gerald) Letter, Norb (Sandy) DeGroot, Margaret (Dick) Forsythe, Florence (Bob) Bartman, Loretta (Paul) Paiser, Agnes (Gary) Schussman, Mike (Karen) DeGroot, Sue (Frank) Walenta, Richard DeGroot, Ellie (Mike) Lucas, and Rosemary (Rick) Brunner; nieces, nephews, godchildren, relatives and friends.
She was preceded in death by her father, Joseph; her sister, Regina; her father-in-law, Bernard; and brother-in-law, Jim.
Things that were held dear to her were sunny days, wide open spaces, the fresh north air, the beautiful blue ocean, a blooming garden, a fish on a line, children's laughter and time with dear friends and family.
I feel truly blessed and honored for the wonderful gift God gave me for 35 years, my mom, my best friend. I will never forget your softness, your kind words, your giving heart and your leading ways. God does only take the best! Love you forever - Tammy
