Obituary for Joy Sandell Liljegren

Joy Sandell  Liljegren
Joy Sandell Liljegren, 80, of Allouez, MI passed away peacefully in her home on Tuesday August 21, 2018.

Joy was born on February 10, 1938 to Florence (Mehl) and Sexton Sandell in Chicago IL. She graduated from Presbyterian St Lukes Nursing School in Chicago in 1958. It was there that she met and married Charles Koivun with whom she had 5 children. Together they made a home in Moline IL.

Joy met and married Tom Liljegren in 1983, and had the great fortune of gaining 3 more children through that marriage.

Joy was a dedicated, hard-working nurse who loved her calling as a nurse. She spent her career filling different roles in the Moline hospitals and health services. She retired in 2002, when she and Tom moved to Allouez, MI to live out her remaining years in their dream home on Lake Superior.

Joy’s hard work and determination were an inspiration to all who knew her. She was a devoted nurse, wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. She was a member of the First Congregational Church in Moline, IL and attended the Methodist Church in Mohawk, MI. Joy was active in PEO for 50 years.

She was preceded in death by her parents.

She is survived by her husband, Tom, and brother (Richard Sandell). She is also survived by her 8 children: Jennifer Alvarez, Kathryn Jacobs, George (Meghan) Koivun, Susan (Tim) Lobb, Jon Koivun, Kathryn Liljegren, Michael Liljegren, and Patty (David) Lindstrom. She has 14 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren.

A celebration service will be held at the Erickson Crowley Peterson Funeral Home in Calumet on Friday, August 24, 2018 at 11:00 am with Pastor Gunsoo Jung to officiate. Friends may call at the Erickson Crowley Peterson Funeral Home on Friday, August 24, 2018 from 10:00 am until the time of the service at 11:00 am.
