Obituary

Joan Louise Blanchard passed away on November 16, 2019 in Lubbock, TX. A memorial will be held on December 13, 2019 and officiated by Ron Finley.

Joan was born on December 26, 1934, to the late Russell and Madge Blanchard in Detroit, MI. Joan attended Michigan State University. Joan attended nursing school and worked as an LVN for 20 years. Her favorite things to do were visiting with family near and far, cooking, playing bingo and shopping at grocery stores. Joan enjoyed watching golf, football, baseball, tennis, and cooking shows. She loved playing cards with family and working crossword puzzles.

The most important thing to Joan was her family’s happiness and well being. Joan was a very loving, caring and generous person who also had a great sense of humor that touched everyone around her and had a ripple effect that will be everlasting. Joan had an admirable level of strength and determination to fight any battle that she endured. She will forever be our hero.

Survivors include her children, Mary Moye, Karen Griffin, Russell Burch, Tracy (husband Jeff) Moore, and Sherri Cockrell; sister, Margaret Sinde; grandchildren, Russell II (wife Jessica), Ryan, Michael (wife Britni), Peyton, Jenifer (fiancé Jordan), Caitlin, and Christopher; and great-grandchildren, Ashlynn, Cole, Russell III, Dylan, Tori, and Hollis; other family members, George and Christina Brunetti & family, David and Heather Sinde & family.

    Aunt Joan will forever be in my heart. We have so many amazing memories. She’s been a huge part of my life and I will miss her dearly. Be at peace auntie Joan. I love you so much.

  2. To my best friend and sister in-law (but really the sister I never had), I miss you with all my heart. You fought hard and stayed with us much longer than we thought and we are so grateful. It was time. You were in a lot of pain. You are at peace now. You will never be forgotten. I love you with all my heart ❤️

  3. Joan’s daughter Sherri is one of my best friends and that is how I met this sweet, funny lady. Sherri asked me if I could clean for her mom and I always looked forward to it. She was always interested in what was going on in my life and always had a great story about hers. My prayers are with her family. Rest in peace sweet lady.

  4. Aunt Joan you will always be one of the strongest women I know, always taken care of someone in some way, you have touched so many hearts and souls throughout your life rather they were family or friends or patients. Even though I have been so far away through the years you were and are always in my heart. The memories I have will be with me forever, rather its you cracking a joke or making fun of something you always had everyone laughing around ya. Elbows on knees I could listen to you and your stories all day. I will miss you and love you forever. Have your peace now and God Bless….

  5. My thoughts and prayers are with Joan’s family. I have fond memories of Joan while living in the Wichita Falls area as a teenager. She always treated me like a daughter when I was in her house while hanging with her daughter Tracy. Lots of love to you all. God Bless you. Love Russie Williams Oaks
