Joann served as a nurse in various hospitals and nursing homes, concluding her career at 72, at The Oaks. She loved a good book, her flower garden, her church, and especially her family. Along with her loving husband of 60 years, Mahlon, they fostered 18 children.

Joann will be missed by her husband; her children, Karen (Jim) Robertson of Schoolcraft, and Craig (Logan) Roe of Schoolcraft; her grandchildren, Cameron (Angela) Robertson, Caitlin Robertson, Ashley (Evan) Beers, and Natalie Roe; and 5 great-grandchildren.

According to her wishes, cremation has taken place. A memorial service is being planned for a future date to be held at the Climax United Methodist Church. Memorials may be made to the Battle Creek Humane Society or to the Kalamazoo Gospel Mission. Please visit Joann's personalized webpage for the guestbook and directions at www.langelands.com.
