Joan was a 1947 graduate of the Toledo Hospital School of Nursing; she retired from the Illinois State Training School for Girls in Geneva, where she had been the head nurse. She was never more confident and proud than when she had on her nurse's uniform. Joan loved Republican politics and her animals; she disliked hypocrisy and anyone telling her what to do.
