Joann was born April 20, 1937, in Flint, Michigan, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Maynard and Evelyn (Spears) Coe. She had a warm and caring personality and was a caregiver to many throughout her life. Joann enjoyed spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren, crocheting, gardening, and collecting bears and owls. She was a long-time member of New Testament Church, where she volunteered often in the kitchen.
Joann leaves to cherish her memory, children; Carol Crocker and Rick Keltner, Sandy and Sonny Bancroft, Karen and Randy Schofield, Barb Gray, Pam and Dave Linhart, and Dave and Tara Curtiss; 17 grandchildren; many great-grandchildren; sister, Norma Jean and Frank Oreskovich; and many special nephews, niece and cousins. Joann’s family would like to thank the wonderful and caring staff of Willowbrook Manor for all the care and love shown to her over the last nine and a half years.
She was preceded in death by her parents; infant son, Gary Alan; and two infant brothers, Richard and Wesley.
