Throughout her life Joan was gregarious, hardworking, broadly sociable, easily made friends, was highly opinionated, vastly competitive and capable at many things (bowling, bridge, in fact card games of almost every stripe) and an avid sports fan and fan in general of anything her children and grandchildren were involved in. She was a great cheerleader of life.

She is survived by her six children: Murray (Amsterdam), Craig and his wife Cindy (Coupeville, WA), Jody Hunnicutt (Denver), Cindy and her husband Tim McKay (Minot), Todd (Denver), Caryn (Houston); nine grandchildren: Case, Connor and Kaisa Lemley (Craig), Austin and Jim McKay (Cindy), Hannah and Will Hunnicutt (Jody), Tyler and Zachary Sedillo (Caryn); 5 great grandchildren, and many nieces, nephews and cousins.
