Guestbook for Joyce G. Beilke
sign guestbook


I am the daughter Avis Snyder, Joyce's dear friend from her trio. I had the pleasure of spending time with Joyce and Mel during a trip to Wisconsin with my mother, and then again on two trips my husband Dan and I made to Wisconsin. Dan and I loved spending time with Joyce and Mel and were completely captivated by the stories they told of their performing days. I am so sorry to hear that Joyce has passed away. I lost Avis in May of 2017. Those beautiful ladies will be missed.

Joyce was the neatest lady. Always laughing and what a voice. She will be greatly missed. I can hear her singing in that big choir in heaven

My dad LOVED Baby Joyce, and he and his cronies would make it a point to be at Maple Grove whenever she performed there. I became an Apple Annie in 1990, and it was a privilege to sing with Joyce. My father would have been so pleased to see the two of us on stage together😍. I remember her advice at one of my first Annie gigs when I didn’t know the words for a couple of tunes. She told me to mouth “watermelon” and just “fake it, baby!” Her charisma charmed the socks off everyone! Joyce, you will be missed! The heavenly choir just acquired a fabulous soloist. I’m singing “Pennies from Heaven” as I write this💕

Although I didn’t know Mrs. Beilke, I know the challenges that come with a loved one coping with dementia. The memories of former years can initially be emotionally painful, but later they can also bring you a measure of comfort. The best source of comfort for me has been my close relationship with God. He promises a time when sickness and death will no longer separate us from our loved ones. (Revelation 21:4) Hopefully, that promise will comfort you too.

Love you and will always miss you and Mel. Joyce was full of love and music and joy for life as well as fun. What a talented and loving person. My life was enriched by knowing Joyce. My love and sympathy to you, Brooksy and Barry.

My condolences to you and your family Brooksy. I have fond memories of your Mom - she was such a sweet lady, always smiling and laughing and of course, her beautiful red hair! I'm sure she is in heaven singing with the angels.

I met Joyce back on December 31,1970 at the Mai Tai. She sang Happy Birthday to me as it was my 18th Birthday. I never forgot how special she made me feel. Then I met her again at Dayton's at the Estee Lauder cosmetic counter. She gave me a lot of inside information for good makeup application. She always said to keep it "light" and fresh. Then when she became Apple Annie, I got to meet her again and she remembered the Mail Tai Days. The last time I seen Joyce was when she was working at Kohl's. She always had a great greeting and smile for me. Now she is smiling and singing with all the angels in Heaven. God's Peace to her Loved Ones.

Many wonderful memories of Joyce. Beautiful woman who I enjoyed getting to know over the years... always warm and friendly and I loved her barn room in her home. Heaven got a real gem when Joyce arrived in heaven. My sympathy to her family. Blessings
