Before marriage Joan worked as a stewardess for Frontier Airlines. After marriage she raised three boys, two of which turned out to be pretty good. We will let you pick which two. Joan was never afraid of anything including snakes, teenage boys, electricity and hard work. She enjoyed fishing, building doll houses, wood working, cooking, sewing and quilting. She was an avid gardener, collected antiques and could never pass a garage sale without stopping. She was always trying to get a deal by asking, “would you take a dime for that.” Joan was a member of Friendship Christian Church and loved spending time with her friends and family, especially all of her grandchildren.
