      Joan, aka Mom, Grandma, and Aunt Joan, spent most of her days enjoying picturesque views from her kitchen table. She loved visiting with friends and family and having a cup of coffee and a little snack. She was an accomplished artist who was inspired by what she saw and whose brush was moved by her heart.

She is joyfully met in heaven by her parents, her son, Joe Stromberg, her brother, Tom Summerson, and her husband, Paul L. Stromberg.
