Joyce Trainham, 79, passed peacefully at her home and joined our Lord and Savior the morning of November 7, 2022.
Joyce was born on November 30, 1942 in Colorado Springs, Colorado to C.D. Peeler and Helen Watts. She was the oldest of three children, survived by her brother Gerald Peeler and sister Kathy Fisher. She married the love of her life, Kenneth Earl Trainham, Jr., on November 4, 1961. Joyce and Ken had two children, a son, Val Trainham, whom preceded her in death, and a daughter, Phyllis Peel, both of whom they loved dearly. Joyce loved baking and cooking, traveling, spending time with her family, and playing cards with her friends. One of her favorite places in the world was spending time in the mountains in Cuchara, Colorado. Food was her love language-she was always tweaking recipes and greatly enjoyed her time in the kitchen providing meals for family and friends. She was a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and friend.
Joyce is survived by her daughter, Phyllis Peel and husband Kelly; her grandchildren Megan Trainham, Courtney McGuire and husband Brian, Lindsey Gillespie, Taylor Merrill and husband John, and Regan Peel; her great grandchildren Evelyn, Lillian, Elise, and Nolan; her brother Gerald and wife Pansy, her sister Kathy and husband Alan; and numerous other family members and friends. Joyce was preceded in death by her husband, Kenneth Earl Trainham, Jr., her son, Val Trainham, and her parents, C.D. Peeler and Helen and Valmon Watts.
