Joyce A. Englerth, 84 of New Holland, entered her home in heaven Friday, February 26, 2021. She was preceded in death by her husband, Raymond E. “Ray” Englerth, in 2010.

Born in Caernarvon Twp., Berks Co., she was the daughter of the late Ralph J. and Margaret (Russell) Spotts.

A 1954 graduate of the former Caernarvon High School in Elverson. In 1979, she attended Institute of Ministry, Bradenton, FL and in 1986, King’s Way Misssionary Institute, McAllen, TX.

Currently she was a member of Worship Center where she and her husband were ordained for ministry. They served as full-time missionaries for over 30 years in different areas such as Jamaica, 7 years in Puerto Rico and some of the surrounding islands. Most of their ministry was in Southern Mexico. They lived and served there for 20 years building churches, training leaders, and planning children’s programs. They showed Christian films out in remote villages along with distributing Bibles, food, clothing, and toys. A large part of their ministry was evangelizing and praying for the sick.

When her husband went home to be with the Lord, Joyce returned to PA. For over ten years she resided at Garden Spot Village where she continued serving the Lord – teaching Bible studies, leading devotionals, praying for the sick, and best of all, telling everyone she came in contact with about the Lord.

Surviving are three children: Debra G. married to Dennis F. Moyer, Narvon, Jeffrey R. married to Sharon M. (Bradford) Englerth, Gap, Timothy R. married to Sally A. (Lantz) Englerth, Paradise, eight grandchildren and 17 great-grandchildren.

In addition to her husband, she was preceded in death by a granddaughter, Heather R. DeHaven and three siblings: Lois Dunbar, June Alicia, and John R. Spotts.

A visitation will be held on Saturday, March 13, 2021 from 10 – 11 a.m. at Worship Center, 2384 New Holland Pike, Lancaster. A Celebration of Life service will follow at 11 a.m. The service will also be livestreamed at The Groff-High Funeral Home, New Holland is in charge of arrangements.

My sympathy to those affected by the loss Joyce. Sometimes I ate at her table on Sundays at Garden Spot retirement home. She was quite a testimony with her positive attitude.

I had hoped to be there in person today celebrating a life well lived. I remember Ray & Joyce in my early days at Worship Center when they would come home from the mission field and share all that God was doing in their area of outreach. They LOVED serving the Lord by loving and serving people. Even after Ray went home to be with the Lord, Joyce NEVER stopped being a witness and a blessing to many. I was always blessed and encouraged just being in Joyce's presence because the love of Jesus and for Jesus seemed to seep through her pores. Well done, my sister in Christ. Much love and appreciation,
Ruby Jones
