Joan Kathryn Shaw Waterbury Obituary
Though she is gone, her song carries on; sustained by the love of her family and friends, and the joy she cultivated during her 91 years, Joan Waterbury passed away Friday, July 3rd in the company of her two beloved sons in Broomfield, CO. A lifelong resident of Lincoln, Joan was a member of the Delta Gamma sorority, PEO, the Junior League, the Lincoln Symphony Board and did vision screenings in Lincoln elementary schools throughout the 1960's as part of the Nebraska Prevention of Blindness program. As a girl, a mother and a grandmother, she spent summers in Estes Park, Colorado, hiking, riding horses and photographing the mountains she loved. Joan leaves the world having inspired those she knew by her abiding love for the arts, travel and culture and her impeccable eye for beauty. In her departure she joins her husband, Jon, with whom she shared 56 joyful married years as a wife, mother and grandmother. Her memory is cherished by her sons Stuart and Christopher, daughter in law, Susan and her grandchildren, Laura, Annie, Elizabeth, Christopher, Genevieve and Isabel.

A private memorial service to be held at a later date. Memorials may be made to the American Macular Degeneration Foundation.
