Joan may garner


Mrs. Joan May Garner, Greenwood, passed away early evening on Friday September 24, 2021. She was 85 years old. Joan was born on April 8, 1936 in Indianapolis, Indiana, the only child of the late Robert Joseph and Mildred (Reeves) McKee.

She enjoyed taking cruises with her husband and making their annual trip to St. Pete Beach, Florida. She and her husband would also make another trip each fall to Destin, Florida with their good friends Carl and Kathleen Breitenstein.

Joan was a devoted and loving wife, mother and grandmother. She was passionate about her grandchildren and never missed a sporting event or school activity they were participating in. She was an excellent cook and was known for her delicious apple ravioli in the fall. She always looked forward to the holidays and preparing those big meals for her family. Her Thanksgiving holidays were always looked forward to by the family and she made sure the meal was absolutely perfect!
