Joni B. Ring, 83, of Woodstock, passed away in her sleep peacefully on November 11, 2019. She was born on June 11, 1936 in Chicago, IL to Raymond and Mabel (Frankowitz) Blaa.
Joni had a great eye for detail, color and style which she used as an interior decorator for Lloyd’s Paint & Paper for over 20 years. She also spent many years volunteering at St Mary’s Church as a receptionist. Joni had a deep love for her family and the Lord. During her life, she touched many other lives with her delightful and caring personality. She was also a master of irreverent humor, as those who were close to her can attest. Joni was like a good movie, that draws you in warms your heart and makes you never want it to end.
She is survived by her husband of 52 years David Ring; and their two children, Paul Ring and Megan (Ring) McDonald; and four grandchildren, Sarah (Ring) Parman, Emily Ring, Samuel Ring and Ian McDonald; and one great-grandchild, Levi Parman.
She was preceded in death by her parents, and a brother Raymond Blaa.
