She spent the last 25 years as a successful executive coach to a wide array of public and private organizations. Above all, she was known for her generous spirit, kind heart, and loyal friendship. Joan is survived by a son, John (Anne) Williams and grandsons, Finn and Declan, of Hermosa Beach; sister, Carol (Pierre) Hauth; and nieces, Stacy and Tara, of Phoenix, AZ.
