Joan loved singing, dance, and had a soft spot for pets of all kinds.  Most of all, she loved her Lord and savior, Jesus Christ. 


She worked in Real Estate and was active in Parent Teacher Associations while her kids where in school.  She often sang in her church and was a Sunday School teacher leading a popular women’s bible study.  She enjoyed gardening and traveling with her husband.


She was the neighborhood mom, opening her doors to anyone in need, and always making room at the dinner table for unexpected company. 


Joan will be most remembered for her strong faith in her Lord Jesus Christ, and her love and compassion for others.  Her life and example made a lasting impact on all of those who knew her.
