She was a lifelong Stratford resident, leading the Memorial Day Parade as drum majorette of Wilcoxsin School. Attending Stratford High School, she was a member of "The Masques" Drama club, performing in many plays, some in lead roles. Her friends: the "TNT" girls' jacket club who all met for lunch throughout their years. Joan was crowned Queen of The May with her court of 12 other students. She graduated in 1941.

Joan was president of St. Mark's Ladies' Guild in the early history of the church.

She loved nature, gardening, Cape Cod vacations at Ellis Landing with family, sewing, reading, Scrabble, and long drives, most recently in the convertible "top down" with a cup of Dunkin coffee and a doughnut sitting at Lordship Sea Wall in the sun.
