In Joan's own words, “My greatest gifts in this life are my daughters: Jennifer and Mary; Son in law, Justin; and my grandsons: Jesse, Zachary, Cameron, Shane, Joseph, and Jonathan.” She retired from Michigan Bell in 1994 after many years of service, and devoted her life to her husband, children, and grandsons. Joan could often be found at her grandson’s soccer games, gymnastic meets, plays, dance recitals, and baseball games.


Joan was an active member in the community: Girl Scout Troop Leader for her daughters, active member of the American Legion, and Croatian Fraternal Union Lodge #651; and member, President, and Treasurer of the Polish Legion of American Veterans Pulaski Post #8.


Joan's Catholic faith was an integral part of her life. She was a parishioner of Saints Charles and Helena for over 40 years. There she was involved in the church choir, funeral dinners, helping with the church festival, and served as a homebound Eucharistic minister.
