Resident of Dayton, NV
After a long strong fight, Joan went peacefully to her new home to join her mother, Charlotte Swayze father, Bobby Gene McBride who was a P.O.W in the Korean War (which Joan wished one day her father's remains would be returned to U.S soil) and beloved grandson Casey Grijalva Jr. Joan graduated from Liberty Union High School and later retired as a meat cutter with Safeway. Joan is survived by the love of her life and husband of 52 years Robert Grijalva, sons Christopher (Jan) Sacramento CA; Casey (Wendy) Brentwood CA; daughter Michelle-Fallon NV; stepdaughter Shelly-Antioch CA; sister Rita-Oakley CA; and her "Partners in Crime" Phyliss & Karen; along with her grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces, nephews, aunts and uncles. In addition to her unconditional love for her family and friends, she also had her 4 Chinese Pugs that brought so much joy and memories. Rest in Peace, you are with great company

My precious friend Joan. I was her pet sitter and her friend. Oh, how she loved her fur babies...the love she had for them was my first attraction to her. After that, I discovered the amazing, open heart she and her husband had for all. I miss you my dear friend.

Joan was more of a sister to me than a cousin. We enjoyed each other's company and could finish each other's sentences. She truly saved my life when we were around 8 years old and continued to save my life in so many ways as the years passed by. We laughed until we cried, then laughed some more. I miss her every day, EVERY DAY.

I like to say, she was like a sister instead of a cousin. We had a lot of good memories. I believe You are in a good place. One day we will be together again. I love you with all my heart.❤❤❤ Also, I want to say, I’m thinking of Bob, he did a good job taking care of you. There’s a lot of love with Bob and your family. Ron wants you to know, he also loves you and your family. Thinking of all you and your family. WITH LOVE. Ron and Phyllis
