Predeceased by her husband Warren Kaye, her daughters Carrie Kaye and Julie Anger, her brother Terry Richardson, and her parents Tom and Vera Richardson.
She was ‘Momma Bear’ to many because of her strong, independent and caring way, always with a beautiful smile and contagious laugh. Always inspiring her kids and grandchildren to work hard, take care of each other, and be sure to have fun. She loved watching all their milestones.
Joan enjoyed life to the fullest taking early retirement which allowed her to fulfill her dreams of spending winters in Florida and summers at River Place Park with trips to the Casinos and plenty of card games. In her eyes friends weren’t just friends, they were family.
