Joyce Carroll Wigton

Joyce Carroll Wigton was born on February 20, 1941, in Hope Township, Lincoln County, to Clarence and Mabel (Peterson) Wigton. As a young child, she suffered through Polio. She lived in a variety of communities including Faribault, St. Peter and Willmar before moving to Marshall in 1979. She lived at REM Fairview and worked for Advance Opportunities. Joyce was always smiling. She enjoyed wearing hats and looking good. She also enjoyed playing cards, singing, and going for car rides, especially if they involved going over bumps or enjoying views of water or the railroad. Joyce died unexpectedly on Wednesday, July 5, 2017, at her residence in Marshall. She is survived by her siblings Clarissa Breyfogle of Garretson, SD, Jean (and Vernon) Popowski of Staples, MN, Jerry Wigton of Mesa, AZ, Betty Wigton of Dell Rapids, SD, Clarence (and Lynn) Wigton of Tracy, MN, nieces, nephews, many friends, housemates at REM and co-workers at Advance Opportunities. She was preceded in death by her parents, brothers Louis and Lee and brother-in-law James Breyfogle.

We want to express our sympathy and let you know that our thoughts and prayers are with you. May you find comfort in Gods promises in the Bible: (Isaiah 25:8) He will swallow up death forever, And the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces. (Rev 21:4) And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away. May your loving memories and the Bible promises comfort you now and in the days ahead.
