Joan was born in Woodstruck, IL in 1943 to Berneice Botts.
Joan was preceded in death by her son, James Struck and her brothers; Bill, Don, Larry and Jack.
She is survived by her sister, Dorothy Potoczky; Son, Jeffrey Struck; daughter, Jackie (Scott) Thompson and grandsons; Joseph (Sabrina) Thompson and Jacob Thompson; her great granddaughter Lennon Joan.
Joan was passionate about her job, so much so that she continued working there even after she officially retired. She worked for Rem, for over 41 years. She was their first employee in 1976.
It had become one of her many joys in life and she would’ve continued working there had her health been better.
Joan will always be remembered for her crafting. She enjoyed making Holiday gift baskets for sale or as gifts. One of her last crafts was cross stitching. She would push herself to work on a blanket for great granddaughter Lennon every day. She also enjoyed going to the beach and spending time with her family and friends.
Joan’s memory will live on in the hearts of all those who loved her.
