Joylyn (Joy) Fern Hague, 81 years of Jasonville, passed away on Wednesday, September 20, 2023. Joylyn was the daughter of Rev. Virgil and Rosemary Hague of Lawrenceville and was born in 1942. She received her bachelor’s degree and master’s degree in music education. She taught music at the Carmel Junior High School for 10 years. She then studied with World Renound Master Guitarist, Suliman Zai and began teaching beginner guitar and ensemble groups at the University of Indianapolis for 42 years. She was also a certified Massage Technician and studied in the US and Canada with various healing modalities and received certification for many of these studies. She counseled people in her home for various problems and opened “Joy’s Studio and the Center for Creative Living.”
Joylyn enjoyed helping people, music of many genres, and spending time with her God-adopted family and pets. She was known to anonymously put a $100 in people’s mailboxes when she saw the need. She was a faithful giver to charities such as Jacques Cousteau Foundation, Native American charities, Greenpeace, and various other animal support groups.
Joylyn had an eternal optimism and a zest for living life to its fullest every day. She had a thirst for knowledge and learning. Joylyn was an avid reader and she also loved to travel. She touched the lives of so many and knew no stranger. Her devotion to family was ongoing and unending. Joylyn was not only a mother, grandmother, great and great great-grandmother, she was beloved as a friend, teacher and counselor. She was a gifted musician and was often told by her supervisors at Uindy that she cared too much about her students.
Joylyn was preceded in death by her parents, Rev. Virgil Hauge and Rosemary Dehaus Hague. She is survived by her brother, Jim Hauge of Lawrenceville, Illinois along with a niece and nephew. She is also survived by her God-adopted family, daughter, Reane Simmerman-Postma, great granddaughter, MaKayla Renae Postma whom she helped raise, both of Jasonsville, Indiana, granddaughter, Rachel Arnold of Indianapolis, granddaughter Stephanie A Fee of Indianapolis, granddaughters, Caitlyn Postma, Kristyn Whitaker, and Peyton Arnold. She had eight great-great grandchildren. And to complete this beautiful family, we cannot forget her beloved dog, Teyah (Native American for Precious) and Smokey the cat.
