A blind date on a Valentine's Day lead to her long, happy marriage to Donald Beecroft on June 28, 1947. Together they raised two children and built two houses. A lifetime Salem resident, she treasured her family and friends and took great pleasure in hosting lovely meals at their gorgeous home and garden. Cooking, sewing, tole painting, traveling, gardening and doing for others were her many passions. Joan was also an active volunteer for a variety of organizations, including the YMCA, and donated to many worthy causes. Donald passed away in 2006.

As the beloved matriarch of our extended family she leaves a lasting legacy.
The family wishes to thank Willamette Valley Hospice for its extraordinary care and compassion throughout this difficult time.
