Joan was a faithful and loving member at First Baptist Church in Bullard where she spent many years teaching Sunday school and lovingly mentoring young ladies in her classes. She had a deep and abiding love for her Lord Jesus Christ and shared that love by word and deed every single day of her life and with everyone she came into contact with.

Joan was a guiding light in the spiritual growth of not only her children, but also her grandchildren. She was so very proud of each and everyone of them.
