JoEllen Lang, 60, of Hubbard Lake, Michigan, entered into eternal life on January 27, 2022, surrounded by her loving family.
JoEllen was born on June 20, 1961, in Grosse Pointe Park to Joseph and Helen (Ringo) Kluce. She was the youngest of four children and grew up in the family home in Warren. Throughout her childhood and younger years, she enjoyed many travels and cruises with family and friends. Upon completion of her associate’s degree from Macomb Community College, she joined General Motors as a secretary.
In 1987, JoEllen met the love of her life, Rodney Lang. The following year, they were married, settled down in Hubbard Lake, and had their daughter, Tiffany. JoEllen deeply valued her role as wife and mother and devoted her life to caring for her family, which she did beautifully. In her later years, she enjoyed traveling the world with Rodney, bonfires and boat rides, and playing with her grandsons. She loved Jesus and is now seeing Him face to face.
JoEllen is survived by her loving husband and best friend, Rodney; daughter, Tiffany (Andrew) Tracey; grandsons, Isaiah, Samuel, and Micah Tracey; brothers, Richard (Christine) Kluce, Ronald (Gail) Kluce, and Robert (Carolyn) Kluce; and many dear nieces and nephews.
