Joan retired after many years of faithful service to Thermogas. She enjoyed spending time traveling, house boating on the Arkansas River, and taking care of her family. Her legacy of love was left with her two children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, whom she was totally devoted to. Her most treasured times were when all of her family gathered together, especially during the holidays. She will be remembered for her positive spirit, her beautiful heart, and her determination to get any job at hand completed with both humor and grace.

The family would like to express a special thanks to the compassionate nurses and staff of Stonehaven Assisted Living Center.
