Joyce L. Kline, 72, went to heaven on June 28, 2020.

Joyce was born December 16, 1947 in Grand River, Iowa to Charles and Betty (Olson) Fitzgerald. She graduated from Tech High School, where she studied stenography. Joyce worked as an underwriter for an insurance company in downtown Des Moines. On April 22, 1967, she married George Kline. Joyce later worked for the Chamber of Commerce in Vacaville, California. Once George and Joyce started their family, she stayed home to raise their three sons. She loved collecting anything “strawberry” from home décor to knickknacks, she loved it all. Joyce enjoyed golfing, swimming, tennis, biking, softball, camping and most recently, traveling. She especially loved the time she and George spent in Branson, Missouri and the Smoky Mountains.

Joyce is survived by her husband of 53 years, George Kline; sons, Jeff (Jodie) Kline, John (Jill) Kline and Josh (Christina) Kline; mother, Betty Fitzgerald; siblings, Roger (Joyce) Fitzgerald, Kathy (Dick) Stradley and Steve (Laura) Fitzgerald; nine grandchildren; one great-grandson; and a host of extended family and dear friends.

She was preceded in death by her father, Charles Fitzgerald.
