She worked for many years as a secretary for Southside Virginia Nursing School and later worked part time in the Registrar’s Office for Greensville County. Joan was a dedicated member of Calvary Baptist Church and served in the library, taught Sunday School, and was a part of the Prayer Shawl for years. She was an avid quilter and was a member of both the Roanoke Valley Quilting Guild and the Meherrin Peacemakers Quilting Guild. Among everything else, her favorite thing to do was spend time with her grandchildren.
In lieu of flowers, please send donations to Calvary Baptist Church. A visitation will be held at Echols Funeral Home on Wednesday February 23rd starting at 1:00 P.M. to 2:45 P.M.
