Joan had many interests in life, but she considered her card ministry with her church to be the greatest gift God gave her. Many people who were sick, lonely, and sad or just needed a word of encouragement received a card from her even if they did not know her. Joan accepted Jesus into her heart on October 5, 1969 at Taylor Memorial Baptist Church where she was a member for many years until moving her letter to Temple Baptist Church, Hobbs, NM on March 14, 1998 where she remained a member until her heavenly ascent. Joan was a beacon of light for Jesus to everyone she met, and she was a dedicated prayer warrior for all. Joan was a beloved mother, grandmother (Mamaw), great-grandmother (Gigi), and great-great grandmother.
