Joan Wearstler

April 24, 1930January 30, 2019

Joan (Quinnette) Wearstler, 88, of Canton, died on Wednesday January 30, 2019. She was born in Liverpool, England on April 24, 1930 to Annie and Samuel Quinnette. Joan is survived by her loving husband of 67 years, William Wearstler. She is also survived by her daughters Vickie (Jack) Kellogg and Kay Ann Peters; grandchildren Nicole (Rodney) Hunt, Samuel (Simon) Hoelzle, Colleen (Andrew) Shawk; and great-grandchildren, Ava, Charlotte, Isaac, and Lenora.

Joan enjoyed a 20 year career at Nationwide Insurance where she made many dear friends with whom she continued to regularly meet. In their retirement, Joan and Bill spent winters in Myrtle Beach, S.C. making memories with friends and family.

Joan will be remembered by her lively storytelling, her vibrant sense of style, and her ability to enjoy all of the simple things in life. She never passed a rose or a baby without an exclamation of praise. Her British accent and quirky sense of humor charmed people wherever she went!

A memorial service will be announced at a later time. Arrangements under the direction of Karlo-Libby Funeral Home.

So saddened to read of Joan's passing. Joan was such a lovely lady. She was always so kind to me growing up. As an adult I enjoyed her quick wit and sense of humor. Always looking beautiful. I have lots of sweet memories
of her. I know she loved her husband and girls. My deepest sympathy to Bill, Vickie, Kay and their families.

Dear Vickie and Family,
I was so sorry to learn of your mother’s death.
I smiled when I read her obituary. I remember her delightful British accent,
her sense of style and beauty. (whoever wrote the piece did an excellent job
characterizing her.)
I met your mom at Canton Ballet when she was there with Colleen, in the
late 80’s.
She was several months younger than my mother. You have my deepest sympathy, and special thoughts for your grieving father.
