Obituary for Joyce Ann Chomko

Joyce Ann Chomko, 74, of Westminster passed away on Thursday, August 1, 2019 at the Carroll Hospice Dove House in Westminster.
Joyce was born on June 13, 1945 in Washington, D.C. to the late William and Lottie Scrivener Whitmore. After retiring from the Federal Government, she worked part time with the Carroll County Visitor’s Center in Westminster, MD.
Joyce was the loving mother of John Paul Chomko of Finksburg and Jennifer Ann Grove and husband Aaron of Westminster. She will be missed by her grandchildren Jonas and Ethan Grove and many loving nieces and nephews. Joyce is also survived by her brother William Brice (Donna) Whitmore, and sisters Linda Seubold and Helen Thompson.
Joyce was a long-time member of the Church of the Ascension Episcopal Church of Westminster where she volunteered for DreamBuilders, an interfaith community building homes for those in need and was actively involved with Outreach, St Martha’s Guild, Alter Guild and Mistletoe Mart. She was also a member of the Westminster Moose and the Red Hat Society.
Since retirement Joyce filled her days making memories with her two grandchildren; ziplining, camping, Hershey Park visits, vacations to North Carolina and their annual trip to Ripken Stadium to see the Ironbirds. Her DreamBuilders trips took her to many places including New Mexico, West Virginia, Vermont, New Jersey and Louisiana. Joyce also loved to travel with her friends to Germany, France, Spain, Egypt, Ireland and many other destinations. Joyce also loved to dance and attend Zumba class.
Joyce will be remembered for her giving and selfless nature, never letting one minute be wasted.
Joyce’s family will welcome friends on Wednesday, August 7, 2019 from 6 to 8 p.m. at Pritts Funeral Home & Chapel, 412 Washington Road, Westminster.
