Obituary for Joyce Bourazak

Joyce A. Bourazak, age 88, passed away on Thursday, March 23, 2023, one week following her husband, surrounded by her family. 


She was born on October 16, 1934, in Peoria to John and Fern (Maston) Coleman. She was married to the love of her life, Jamel Bourazak, on Sept. 15, 1960, in Westmont, IL. She was preceded in death by her parents, sister, Audrey Coleman, and loving husband, Jamel. She is survived by her 4 children including Lee (Judy) Graves, Jim (Edy) Bourazak, Jamie (Mark Dixon), and Lisa (Jessica German) Bourazak; 2 brothers including Larry (Barb) Coleman and Ron (Marty) Coleman; 5 grandchildren including Austen Wood, Cody (Katy) Alexander, Whitney Lott, Nicholas (Hayley) Bourazak, and Tyler (Kristina Anderson) Alexander; and five great grandchildren.


Joyce was a devoted wife and mother with a smile on her face at every turn. The love and support she showed her family was beyond measure. She supported her kids through all of their sports, cheerleading, dance, and every other activity they tried. She raised her daughters to be strong independent women, so they would never have to depend on anyone. Joyce opened her heart and house to everyone who crossed her path. There would always be food on the table, a story, and maybe even a word of advice.


Joyce and Jamel had a love like no other that we have seen. She could not be without the love of her life. Raise a glass of red wine in her honor and make a toast to the most wonderful mother, wife, and sister her family could ask for. She will be dearly missed by all her knew her.


Funeral services will be at 10:30 AM with a visitation one hour prior at Resurrection Mausoleum on Tuesday, March 28, 2023. Entombment will follow at the Mausoleum.


Memorials may be made to St. Jude Ride to Memphis.
