Leach in December of 1956. Joan was blessed with three sons, and raised her family in the Elkton and Saginaw area. She worked as a hairstylist for a few years and also worked at the Huron County Courthouse.  Joan spent the last few years at Stone Crest Assisted Living in Freeland where she was well cared for by staff and enjoyed spending time with her family.
