Joel E. Stoll, 82, of Odon, Indiana, went to be with the Lord at 2:03 a.m. on Friday, May 8, 2020 at his home. He was born on August 2, 1937 to Benjamin and Fannie (Graber) Stoll in Daviess County, Indiana. Joel married Eva (Graber) Stoll on January 24, 1958.
Joel was a member of Providence Mennonite Church. He was an owner of Farmers Fertilizer & Seed Co. until its sale several years ago. He was a small farmer until his move to the town of Odon. In his later years, he loved providing a taxi service to the Amish people. Joel liked nothing better than getting in his garden. Just last week, he got to plant a row of onions.
Joel treasured his family, especially his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He enjoyed his time with relatives and all the many friends he made through his fertilizer business and taxi service. He seemed to know everyone.
