Joan attended Ten Mile Baptist Church and was very appreciative of brother Gray, who came to visit and pray with her in her time of need as did Brother Sefried. Joan loved being with her family, going to gospel singings, watching her gospel DVDs and her little dog Bootsie, who was such a great companion to her.
