A longtime resident of Dellwood, Joan was a devout Catholic and guiding matriarch that was known for sharing her intellect with others, from hostas to the stock-market. She enjoyed collecting antiques, silver napkin rings, solving cross-word puzzles, and was a self-taught interior decorator with natural talent. As an avid gardener with a green thumb, many of her plants will live on in the gardens of her extensive family.
