During her years with Post as products were developed and needed testing, Joan used that opportunity to let her grandchildren be first on the list. Bringing home all the left-over tested products for them to enjoy. She loved taking care of people, especially children. She could never say no to her grandchildren. After her retirement in 2001 she would assist in the upbringing of her great-grandchildren Sadie and Joe Maitland. Building a very special friendship with them. Joan loved shopping at her favorite shopping center. She was a collector of many things, especially chickens. Joan enjoyed the flowers and being outdoors. She was strong-willed and was not one to give up.
