She ended her career as the Senior Meetings Planner for the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association retiring after some 20 years of service. Joan loved to cook and everyone loved to eat whatever she cooked. She was a true artist with food. She liked cooking all types of cuisines. It’s not bragging to say that Joan made the best Gumbo outside of New Orleans, Her Panang Curry was as good as any you that you would get in a Thai restaurant. She was an excellent conversationalist. Her humor, wit and cooking will be sorely by her friends and family.
