Joan E. Flowerday Boesler, age 79 of Grand Rapids, passed away at Provision Living of Forest Hills on February 17, 2021. Joan was born on January 31, 1942 in Detroit the daughter of Robert & Dorothy Flowerday.

On June 30, 1962, Joan was united in marriage to the love of her life Milton Boesler who survives her.

Always a professional, Joan spent her early career working as an Executive Assistant for the Ford Motor Company. After the birth of her children Joan decided to spend this time being an at home mom while they were young. Joan still worked tirelessly at their school and was very active in the PTA which brought her great joy. Joan did return to the workplace as an Executive Admin Assistant at the Providence Hospital finally retiring after many years.

For 17 years, Joan and Milt were active in the Lions Club, both volunteering their time as officers and assisting with the community functions.

When Joan took time for herself, she was usually found stimulating the economy. It has been said she had a black belt in the art of shopping. The mall and her favorite shops enjoyed her frequent visits. Most importantly, Joan was a devoted wife, loving mother and caring grandmother who will be missed by all who knew her.

Besides her husband of 58 years, Joan is survived by her children Cheryl Snider, Terry (Alain) Louchez, Scott (Susan) Boesler, son-in-law Mike (Sue) Storrer and her grandchildren Nick, Derek, Alex, Gabrielle, Jacquelyn and John along with her loving honorary grandchildren, nieces Angela Conard and Bethany Boesler. In May of 2020 Joan was preceded in death by her daughter Susan Storrer.
