Noah, Joan Edith (10 October 1929 – 11 September 2018)

Joan E. Noah, age 88, of Willard, peacefully passed away at Marshfield Medical Center on Tuesday, September 11, 2018.

Joan Edith Herrick was born on October 10, 1929, in Willard, to Jack and Anna (Pintar) Herrick. She was raised on the family farm and received her education at North Mound School. She was united in marriage to Cletus F. Susa on May 29, 1949 at Holy Family Catholic Church, in Willard. They purchased a farm in Greenwood and farmed until 1961. After selling the farm, they purchased and operated the White House Inn, in Willard. After their divorce, Joan worked several jobs, including, a nurse's aide at Memorial Medical Center in Neillsville, Nelson Muffler in Neillsville, a store clerk at the Farmer's Store in Greenwood, a cook for the Greenwood School District, worked in the deli at the Neillsville IGA, and worked at Model Laundry in Neillsville. She married Richard Noah on August 29, 1970 in St. Paul, MN. They later divorced. Joan lived in Willard until entering Atrium Post Acute Care of Marshfield, in January 2017.

She had several interests, but especially loved spending time with her family, reading, being on her computer, volunteering at the Highground in Neillsville, and she had a great sense of humor.

A Celebration of Life will be held at 11 a.m. on Friday, September 21, 2018 at Cuddie Funeral Home, in Greenwood, with Chaplain Dennis Fahey officiating.
