Joan and Hal loved to travel, both domestically and internationally and enjoyed many fun-filled vacations.  Joan was a member of the Does and was selected Doe of the Year in 2001.  Joan also enjoyed playing majong with a group of friends every week.  But it was Joan’s love of the beach, ocean and sun where she could be found most days.  Joan’s greatest joy was spending time with good friends and family and her grandchildren were the light of her life.
