Upon retirement from Kodak, she continued to work at Nazareth College, and volunteered at St. Joseph’s Church and The Shepherd Home in Penfield. She enjoyed line dancing with the Monroe County Country Line Dancers and loved to travel with the line dancing group.
Joan had a strong affinity for her Catholic faith, the color blue, Raggedy Ann and Andy, warm weather and sunshine, music (often sharing a chorus of “Zip a Dee Do Dah” with anyone who would join), butterflies, Rummikube and Dominoes.
