Joyce A. Leubka

Joyce A. Leubka, age 69, of Dubuque, IA, completed her earthly journey on March 25, 2024.  To honor Joyce’s life, a private family service will be held at a later date.  The Tri-State Cremation Center is humbly serving Joyce’s family.


Joyce was born on November 3, 1954, in Dubuque, IA, a daughter to Lester (Ruby) Leubka.  She eventually made her way into the banking world and spent many years, in many towns around the country, serving the customers as best she could.  Joyce was most recently working as a cashier at the Q Casino until her health issues became more than she could manage with work as well.  Joyce enjoyed visiting and socializing with her friends whenever possible and she was always sure to give her two cents if the conversation required a little extra commentary.  We will miss Joyce more than she could possibly know and are forever grateful for the good memories she leaves behind.  May the Lord grant you peace from your earthly battles now and keep you safe in His grace-filled arms until we all meet again.


Those left behind to cherish the memory of Joyce include,

her three children,

Kim (Jared) Bechen, Dubuque, IA,

Andy (Ann) Kamentz, East Dubuque, IL,

and Katie (fiancé Michael Maiers) Leibfried, Dubuque, IA;


her four grandchildren,

Jayden, Carver, and Lucy Kamentz, and Neenah Maneman;


her siblings,

Vicki (Mike) Holmberg, Dubuque, IA,

Ken (Karen) Leubka, Dubuque, IA,

and Ron (Lynne) Leubka, Dubuque, IA;


her dear friends,

Cindy (Rod) Carr, Dubuque, IA,

and Rose Marie Reno, Dubuque, IA;


along with numerous extended family, friends, and neighbors.


Joyce was preceded in death by her parents.


Joyce’s family would like to thank Dr. Hermann, Dr. Marks, and the nurses and staff at Hospice of Dubuque for all of their professional and compassionate care, along with her friends, Cindy, Rod, and Rose for all of their love and support over the years.  The world is only as good as the people who are working within it and with folks like all of you, the world is surely a better place today.  Thank you.
