Joan had a great love of gardening, especially her Dahlias, travelling, and spending time with her grandchildren, going to all their activities. She instilled the kids with a love for the outdoors, including bird watching, fishing, and blueberry picking.
A nearly lifelong resident of Westlake, she continued to enjoy getting together with her friends from the Westlake High School class of 1956. She was also a lifelong member of the Westlake United Methodist Church, and a 25 year volunteer at Fairview Hospital.
She will be greatly missed by her family, many friends, and the entire “Bassett Road Gang.”
