April 4, 1945 — May 24, 2024

Parker, Colorado

Joyce Ann Hansen Haskell, 79, was born in Weiser, Idaho in 1945. She was the oldest child of Ed and Verena Hansen. She had 3 younger siblings and loved to boss them around. She played the trumpet and was on the dance team. She hated to work on her dad’s farm, so she went to Rick’s College and found a boy that didn’t want to be a farmer. That boy became her husband for 57 years. She got her teaching degree and taught school, while her sweetheart, Blaine, was in Australia on his mission. Five weeks after he got home, they married in the Idaho Falls LDS Temple in 1966. While finishing Blaine’s degree at BYU, they had a daughter, Mandi. 

After moving to Washington, Joyce and Blaine had 4 more children, Stefanie, Nicole, Colette, and Garren. They all loved to go to the beach, jump on the tramp, and make forts in the woods in Federal Way, Washington, while Blaine worked at Boeing for 12 years.

Joyce’s hobbies were making porcelain dolls, toll painting, cross-stitch, crochet, and collecting anything…. like Beanie babies, thimbles, antiques, and fine china. She loved reading, quilting, scrapbooking, camping at Lake McConaughy, and Birch Bay, Canada. She liked bargain shopping and loved a good deal. She loved to bake anything with sugar, brownies, cookies, cake, and chocolate; and she loved to cook, and make candy. She loved to decorate her house and make it beautiful and she loved flowers, and gardening.

Joyce served in many church callings in Primary, Relief Society and Young Womens. She was an example to her family in her faith, service, and love to others.

In 1981 the family moved to Aurora, Colorado and Blaine worked for United Airlines. Blaine and Joyce got to travel to some fun places: South Africa, Germany, Italy, Hawaii, Australia, Fiji, Canada, Mexico, New Zealand, France, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Austria, England, Spain, and all around the Caribbean. As a family they got to travel as well, but not the exotic places… mostly Idaho.

Joyce was such a good mom. The family loved making fun of her, as they are all very sarcastic and love to joke around, and she was a good sport. She loved music, and always had it playing in the background.

In 1993, the family moved out to Parker, Colorado which is now known as the Haskell Mansion. Joyce and Blaine have 8 grandkids, and 6 great grand kids. The Haskells love to laugh together, play games, and love to celebrate the holidays and birthdays together.

Joyce is a breast cancer survivor of almost 10 years, and a survivor of 4 teenage daughters at one time. We love her so much and know that we will be together forever as an eternal family. Our family has been comforted by all your prayers and friendships through the years. Thanks for being a part of our lives. Love, all the Haskell’s.

 A memorial for both Blaine and Joyce will be held at a later date.

During this difficult time, and in lieu of flowers, our family would appreciate any gift cards for food, that can be sent directly to Blaine or his family. Thank you.
