Joan was a beautiful soul with a radiant and contagious smile. She loved many, and cared for all. Joan was a parishioner of St. Bernadette Catholic Church where she volunteered for many years. She was a prayer warrior, prayed the rosary, and served her Lord and Savior with her whole heart. She was blessed with a beautiful family, married many years, she loved her husband and children, but above all adored her grandchildren and great grandchildren. Anyone who knew her, knew she loved to read, sew, and shop with her girls. Joan leaves a legacy behind and has been united with her family who passed before her. She now rests in the arms of her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. We love you Mimi, “My Heart”.

We would like to thank the care givers and Haydel Memorial Hospice for the care and love shown to our mother.
