Age 87, of Apple Valley, formerly of Bloomington. She will be dearly missed by her husband of 67 years, her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren whom she adored and treasured the time with. Joan had an infectious personality, a wonderful sense of humor and was the utmost hostess who never wanted to miss a party. Joan was a charter member of Bloomington Federated Women’s Club and spent many years giving of herself in multiple volunteer services including Southdale Fairview Hospital, Loaves and Fishes, and many others.
