Joan retired from the Food and Nutrition Department at Hannibal Regional Hospital and worked in the Food and Nutrition Department at Maple Lawn Nursing Home. 

She was not happy unless she was making chocolate chip cookies or cooking for company. She loved to cook and her friends and family loved for her to cook. When you visited Joan, she was never without a pie in the freezer and a smile on her face that you were in her home. 

Joan was one of the most hospitable and giving people God created. You could always count on her to send a birthday card to those she loved. 

Her faith, family, and friends meant the world to her. Joan was a member of Calvary Baptist Church in Quincy, Ill.

Graveside services will be held Friday, Aug. 2, at 11 a.m., at the Emden Memorial Gardens Cemetery, Emden, Mo. 

Visitation is from 10 a.m. until the time of service. 

Memorials may be made to the Muscular Dystrophy Association of Central Illinois.
