She was born in Rochester, NY on August 7, 1931. A graduate of the State University of NY at Geneseo, Joan taught first grade for many years in the Greece Central School District in New York State.
After moving to Virginia in 1980, she retired from teaching and devoted her time to her family. She enjoyed many happy times spent with her grandchildren.
She loved animals and had many beloved pet cats, and dogs over the years. Numerous animal rescue organizations benefited from her generous donations. Her neighborhood Bluebird Trail fledged thousands of birds over 35 years. Watching the deer, raccoons, birds, and other wildlife in the beautiful woods surrounding her home gave her much pleasure.
