Joan was born on June 2, 1964 in Sullivan County, TN, and was the daughter of the late Dee and Kathleen (Light) Simpson.
She was a great Sunday school teacher at Greenwood Chapel for many years. She enjoyed her Sunday school children so much, and many she still knew in their adult life. She felt her main purpose was to serve and inspire other people. Joan was a very humble lady, and a precious wife, mother, and grandmother.
