Joan had a great fondness for animals and such deep love for her rescue dog Peaches and her two cats, Phoebe and Agnes. She and Peaches enjoyed frequent walks together at different parks, their favorite being Castlewood. Joan was also passionate for horses and owned several over the years. She loved playing board games and Gin Rummy, especially with her grandchildren and was known for making up her own rules. She enjoyed spending time with friends playing Bridge, meeting at Bible Study or exercise classes. Joan was fortunate to be able to travel to some amazing places during her lifetime. She cherished her visits to Michigan catching up with family. But nothing brought her more joy than being a mother and grandmother. She was one of a kind and will be greatly missed.
