Obituary of Joyce Courtney


Joyce Courtney, 1939-2023: born and raised in Ohio; passed suddenly in Colorado. 


Preceded in death by her brother John Fittro, son Ronald Block, parents Edison and Lelah Fittro; and her husband Harold Courtney. 


Survived by her son Jeff Block (Mary), granddaughter Hannah Block; and Jeff's father / Hannah's grandfather, Harvey Block. 


From her early years in Ohio, to her golden years in Colorado – along with time in Minnesota, South Dakota, California, and Florida – Joyce was an architect of lifelong friendships. 


Always a strong supporter for the events of her families and friends – regardless of the activity, Joyce was in attendance – hockey, wrestling, volleyball, soccer, dance recitals, and school award ceremonies.


A fine athlete in her own right, Joyce excelled in basketball and golf growing up. She also participated in her high school marching band.


 Joyce was an exceptional employee, with a strong work ethic, retiring twice – first, from Stevinson Toyota; and second, from Guest Relations with the Denver Broncos. 


Even after retirement, Joyce was always on the go – events for the grandkids, adamantly pursuing her daily 10,000 steps; and arguably her favorite – road trips with her friends.


 Joyce will be forever missed by all her loving family and friends.


 Celebration of Life events to be held, following the new year – weather permitting.
