Joyce Anne Hauk

October 26, 1941 — April 27, 2024

Indianapolis

Joyce Anne (Ficklin) Hauk was born on October 28, 1941, to James Clay Ficklin and Dolores Mae (Johnson) Ficklin. 

Joyce married George Albert Hauk on November 15th, 1959. Together they raised 4 daughters, they had 13 grandchildren, and 19 great grandchildren. George and Joyce loved to travel, going out west was a favorite for them, they had a great love for the Rocky Mountains. She served as the GPS, with the road map in her hands and with George behind the wheel, they crossed the United States in 3 weeks as well as many other road trips. She prided herself in the fact that never one time did they get lost. 

Joyce was a stay-at-home mom for many years. She spent about 10 years involved in the Camp Fire Girl Program, she was a group leader and served on many leader board groups. On the day before she passed, one of the girls that was in her group came to visit her and told her how much of an impact she had on her life. So much so that she had grown up to be a hospice nurse. She was a member of the Independent Beech Grove Nazarene Church. She stayed involved in church, she loved to help plan and cook for church dinners until her health began to decline, and she loved to help with Bible Schools. Once all the girls were in school, she decided to get a job where she worked as a lead merchandiser for Kmart for many years. She retired at the age of 65. She loved to watch the birds, George kept the feeders full and both of them would count the different birds that would come. Hummingbirds were a favorite. She was a prankster and loved a good joke. Many Christmases included gag gifts to her son in laws. Up until a few years ago, Christmases were a Hauk tradition, every year Christmas Eve was spent at George and Joyce’s. She was the best cookie and fudge maker in the world. Everyone would agree it was the best night of the year, the whole family jammed in together in their little house. 

Joyce was a prisoner to arthritis pain; it ravished her body. Causing her to lose so much of her mobility. She missed being able to go to church and going to her kids’ houses. Walking was a challenge. Even with added help at home, it still was not enough, she needed full-time healthcare. She made the decision to move from home into a nursing facility herself. The pain had increased because of lack of mobility and her memory was failing quickly. 

Joyce is preceded in death by her parents, James, and Dolores Ficklin; her brother, Ronald Ficklin; her husband, George Hauk; her daughter, Debra Lynn Dossey, her grandson, John Nicholas Dossey; and great grandson, Felix Douglas Violette. 

She is survived by her daughters, Dolores Johnson (Roger), Dawn Spears (Doug) and Diana Renollet (Brian); grandchildren, Daniel, Michael, JoAnna, Matthew, Justin, Rachael, Travis, Alison, JuliAnna, Robert, David, and Jordon; her brother, Edward Lee Ficklin, and a host of great grandchildren.
