Joan was a member and deaconess at the Mogadore Christian Church. She was a member for 73 years. She enjoyed her family more than anything! She also enjoyed reading the newspaper, any book, crossword puzzles, word searches, and sudoku. Plus, the game of Jeopardy brought her joy and listening to her beloved Cleveland Indians games. She was a devoted Mogadore Wildcat Backer in any sport or activity. She loved the Friday night lights and when her legs were unable to take her into the stadium she would watch from the Methodist Church parking lot from her car. When the CATS would score she would honk her horn in joy! Joan enjoyed vacation time with her family at the beach. She left a legacy of how to be a strong working woman while balancing a family and teaching her daughters that kindness matters.
