Joan loved spending time with her grandchildren and great grandchildren supporting them in all aspects of their lives. She could often be seen supporting them on the sidelines of their sporting events. Joan loved spending time with her family and friends. She had a big heart and went out of her way to help anyone in need or just be a compassionate listener. She has many friends who love her, as does her family. She is and will always be deeply missed. Joan was an active board member of VWIN, a veteran’s widow organization that helped other veteran’s widows. Joan and Dave were members of the Elks, Eagles, and TREA, where they spent many enjoyable afternoons and evenings with friends. If there was a family event, she was there.

Until we meet again Mom may God hold you in the palm of his hand.
