Avanelle Koci Joynt, 87, of Naples, Florida, passed away on August 6, 2021 peacefully in her sleep.

Avie was born on June 8, 1934, to Milo and Ellen Koci in LaCrosse, Kansas. After graduating from LaCrosse High School, she continued her education at Kansas State University.

She is survived by her loving spouse, Michael R. Joynt, her sisters, Gaynelle Campbell (Oren) and Lois Kershner (Robert) as well as nine children, Debbie Likens (Morris), Cathe Rosier (Eddie), Steve Huennekens (Linda), Lisa Schisler (Mark), Cathy Labath (John), Debbi Lang (Tom), Kerry Joynt (Sue), Steve Joynt, Tery Elliot (Russ), 23 grandchildren and 32 great-grandchildren.

Avie was predeceased by her parents, Milo and Ellen Koci, and her son, Dennis.

She dedicated her life to being a fantastic and wonderful wife, mother and grandmother focusing and supporting them unconditionally through the many passions and difficulties of their lives. She made it her mission to improve the lives of others.

When Avie wasn’t filling her home with warmth and kindness, she could be found in her sanctuary, which was her beautiful yard. Her spirit will live on in a legacy of love and compassion.

There is no memorial planned as she did not wish to have services.

From Jim and Charlene Gaitens
Dear Mike and family so sorry to learn this sad news. Avie was so kind and welcoming to both of us when we first joined the choir. I’ll always remembering her smiling in the 1st row and when she volunteered in the office and our Intl Festival and at the B’shop events. We are all blessed to have known her.

Dear Mike and Family,
We are so grateful for the many years Avie was able to sing in our choir at St. Peters. I pray that she is now singing with the angels in heaven!

Hey Mike: Just learned of Avie’s passing. Our deepest sympathy to you and the family. I think, quite often, of the many good times we had when singing together and the patience exhibited by Avies when she put up with us while learning a ‘new one’!
God Bless You!
Ron and Carmen Haltermon
