Joyce Roosli, age 89 of Madison, passed away on Saturday, July 6, 2019, at her home. She was born on July 15, 1929, in Gratiot, WI.
Joyce graduated from Darlington High School in 1947, and then moved to Madison to live with her sisters. In 1949, she married Kenneth Wehinger and the couple farmed near South Wayne until Kenneth's death in 1951. On April 9, 1955, Joyce was united in marriage to Eugene Roosli. Joyce and Eugene owned and operated Roosli Feed and Seed.
