Family, close friends, travel, playing cards, sketching, shopping and food were the passions of her life. Her skills as an avid Gin Rummy and Canasta player were unmatched due to her amazing recall. Shopping was another passion, and her greatest joy was sharing her love by choosing the right presents for all she loved. Cooking was an obsession for her, and a joy for her family. To know Joan was to love her. Her big smile and her warm heart will be missed by all.

Joan will lovingly be remembered by her husband of 61 years, Edward Wolf Sr. her children, Tracy (Gareth) Morgan, Edward Wolf Jr, and Kathy (Scott) McLallen and her grandchildren, Anna Wolf, Alex Morgan, Katie Morgan, Matthew McLallen, Ryan McLallen and Christopher McLallen.
