Joyce Ann (Rentel) Vollrath

July 16, 1943 — January 20, 2022

Joyce Ann (Rentel) Vollrath, 78, of Pilot Grove, MO passed away Thursday, January 20, 2022, at her home surrounded by her family.

Joyce was born July 16, 1943, in Boonville, MO, the daughter of Robert J. (Rob) and Dorothy Mae (Davis) Rentel. April 11, 1964, Joyce was united in marriage to James Vollrath at St John Catholic Church in Clear Creek, MO.

Joyce is survived by her husband James of the home and their children Bryan Vollrath and wife Christina of Pilot Grove MO, Mitch Vollrath of Pilot Grove MO, Rhonda Schlotzhauer of Columbia MO, and Darrin Vollrath and wife Susan of Pilot Grove MO.

Joyce will also be greatly missed by grandchildren Lauren Fosse (Nick), Keaton Vollrath, Tailor, Melissa, Mason Schlotzhauer (Noelle), Morgan Grimsley (Brandon), and Grant Vollrath. Joyce especially cherished her great-grandchildren Maverick and Josie Fosse (Lauren and Nick) and Bentley Grimsley (Morgan and Brandon). She was known to many as Grandma, Me Maw, and Grandma James.

Her special talent was “love of children” and in turn, the children loved her right back. Once her grandchildren were born, she opened her home as a daycare. Her role as grandma expanded as she began caring for the children of other families. She treated these children with the same love and affection that she had for her own.

Joyce was also quite the athlete and very competitive in return. As her children and grandchildren will tell you, she showed no mercy, and they could pick her voice out in any crowd.

She will also be greatly missed by her sisters Marty Twenter and Alice Brownfield and sisters-in-law Pat Rentel and Janice Rentel.

Joyce was preceded in death by her parents Rob & Dorothy Rentel, her siblings RJ Rentel and Bill Rentel, and her brother-in-laws Larry Twenter and John Brownfield.

The Rosary will be prayed at 8:45 am Monday, January 24, 2022, at St. Joseph Catholic Church, Pilot Grove, MO. Following the Rosary, the family will receive friends until 10:00 am.

Mass of Christian Burial will be at 10:00 am Monday, January 24, 2022, at St. Joseph Catholic Church with Father Derek Hooper, officiating. Burial will follow at St. Joseph Catholic Cemetery.

Attendees are encouraged to wear a mask.

Memorial contributions may be made in her memory to St. Joseph Catholic School, Pilot Grove MO 65276 or Hospice Compassus, 3050 Interstate 70 Dr SE Suite 100, Columbia MO 65201.
