Mrs. Joyce Rothhammer Walker, age 81, of Caulfield, Missouri, passed away on Saturday, May 1, 2021 in Springfield, Missouri with her loving family by her side. She was born to parents Grant and Alice (Maitrejean) Rothhammer on July 20, 1939 in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Joyce was an avid gardener who grew everything from flowers to vegetables. She loved making quilts and sewing in the winter when she could not be in her precious garden. She was a fun-loving, bright woman who enjoyed every moment she could with her family. There were no strangers in her world. To know her was to love her, and she repaid that love with hugs and friendship. She loved going to church and singing loud and proud while she praised Jesus. She found her strength in the Lord and there is no doubt that she is with Him now, singing and praising His name. Joyce is deeply loved and will be forever missed.
She is survived by her husband of almost 6 years, Bobby Walker; two sons, Danny Rowe of Mountain Home, AR and Dexter Rowe of Bakersfield, MO; one daughter, Debra (Corky) Houghton of Clinton, MS; one stepdaughter, Regeana (Tim) Baughman of Mountain Home, AR; six granddaughters, Emily (Michael) Anderson, Rebekah Rowe, Leah Rowe, Hannah Decker, Haley Houghton, and Kelsey Houghton; four grandsons, Uriah Rowe, Chase Houghton, Jonathan Roy, and Jesse Roy; one brother, Grant ''Buzz'' Rothhammer of California; four sisters all of Oklahoma, Stella Williams, Alice ''Toady'' (Pete) Price, Margie Beach, and Carol Henderson; numerous nieces and nephews; and lastly, too many to count ''adopted'' children, because everyone Joyce met she claimed to be hers.
She is preceded in death by her parents; her late husband, Ansel Reasons; three brothers Grant ''Buddy'' Rothhammer, Alvin Rothhammer and Glen Rothhammer; and two sisters, Melva Milligan, and Wanda Chamblee.
