Joan and Dean had four children: Eric, Wallis, Robert, and Michael. Through his service in the Air Force, Dean and Joan moved their family to Hastings in 1972 and loved the community so much that they made it their permanent home after retirement. Joan enjoyed cooking, taking care of her family, was an avid bowler, cheered for the Nebraska Huskers and Arkansas Razorbacks, and was very active in her church.

Joan was preceded in death by her parents; four brothers, Jack, Buddy, Billy, and Jimmy; three sisters, Norma Jean, Dorothy, and Nadine; and her beloved husband, Dean.
