Her parents passed when she was young. She was adopted by her aunt and uncle, Blanche and Charles Rex Little. They were kind and attentive. Her father served in WWII as a civil engineer.

 

The young family moved to Cincinnati, where Joy grew up. She studied Elementary Education at Miami University, Ohio, graduating in 1954. Her first teaching job took her and two girlfriends to Denver, Colorado, where they had many fun adventures. She also taught in Santa Ana, California, Michigan and Illinois.

Joy married and out-lived three husbands. She married first, Charles A. Yantis, a Marine fighter pilot in 1955 in Laguna Beach, Calif. They welcomed three children, including twins, Charles W. (deceased), and Deborah, as well as Jennifer. Joy was a devoted wife, mother and an excellent cook who liked to entertain. She was a Brownie and Cub Scout leader, and a talented seamstress. She often filled the house with the “Sound of Music” on a baby grand piano.

The family moved to Tennessee, then to Champaign, Illinois, and Dearborn, Michigan. The wanderers then moved on to the Chicago area, then Dallas and East Texas. They found their way back to the Chicago area in the early 1970s. Joy has remained in the area ever since.

In 1980, Joy married William E. Currie, they resided in Hinsdale. In 1983 Joy received an MBA. She opened the Hinsdale Antique Shop on First Street in 1987. The store was closed several years later for health reasons. Bill Currie, a gentle and fun soul, passed on in 2000.

Soon love was on the horizon again. Joy met James W. Blocker at a dance group in Elmhurst. The two became fast friends, then partners, and were married Oct. 2017. They enjoyed music, cards, plays, traveling and most of all spending time with family and friends. Jim Blocker passed in December 2018.

Joyce E. Lindeman
06/30/2020

Joyce E. Lindeman (nee;  Eckberg), 80, of Oak Brook, IL passed away suddenly Tuesday, June 30, 2020, at Good Samaritan Hospital, Downers Grove, IL.     

Beloved wife of William Lindeman, loving mother of sons Bob (Janice), Ken (Teri), and Don (Chris) Lindeman.  Devoted Grandmother to Brian, Kyle, Tom, Jonathan, Katie and Dan Lindeman and Ashley (Ron) Garcia. Great-Grandchildren; Alex and Rylee Garcia. Dear sister to George (the late Rose), Ron (Doreen) and Glen (Sue) Eckberg.  Caring Aunt to many nieces and nephews. She is preceded in death by her parents Esther and George Eckberg.     

Joyce was born July 5, 1939, in Chicago. She met her husband, William, while attending Argo High School and they recently celebrated their 62nd wedding anniversary.  Joyce worked as a bakery production supervisor at Pepperidge Farm in Downers Grove for nearly ten years before being diagnosed with lung cancer in 1984.  Her love for life and determination helped her survive both lung and breast cancer as well as a brain aneurism discovered ahead of her 50th birthday.  Through these health threats, Joyce never complained or felt sorry for her situation, but approached each challenge with determination and confidence.

Her appreciation for life, friends and family, brought joy to all who knew her.  She enjoyed life-long friendships, and was active with many groups including the Oak Brook Women’s Club, their gourmet sub-groups and the Elmhurst Garden Club.  Joyce had a passion for plants and flowers, and would frequently bring such gifts when visiting her children. 

Joyce was happiest when with others, enjoying special events and time with family.  She also loved travel.  She appreciated the food, scenery, and culture while touring parts of Europe, but it was Florida and Las Vegas that became regular destinations.  She loved warm weather, a pool and the beach.  She especially cherished family vacations, whether with her young family driving to California, or in later years, joining children and grandchildren for special trips.  She will be missed dearly.     

Visitation will be Monday, July 6 from 3pm to 8pm at Adolf Funeral Home (7000 S. Madison St., Willowbrook, IL) with a 6:30 pm sharing of remembrances.  In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the Make A Wish Foundation.  Internment, Bethania Cemetery, Justice IL.
