Don and Joan started their family business, Don Bacon Appliance Service, together in 1958. She was the foundation that the company was built on, while raising her children and tending to her family. Joan was a faithful servant of God and devoted much of her time to the church and supporting the missions. Joan and Don enjoyed golfing, bowling, hosting parties, and traveling the world together. Joan most enjoyed spending time with her family whether on vacations or at home.
She was the loving grandmother to 19; Ron (Danielle) Bacon Jr., Jenny (Eric) Ilse, the late Joe Bacon, Kristie (Brian) Bain, Adam Bacon, Alli (Adam) Davis, Justin (Abri) Bacon, Logan Beare, Colan Beare, Morgan Beare, McKenzie (Vinny) Gutierrez, Maddie Young, Hannah Bacon, Andy Bacon, Katie Bacon, Mary Bacon, Olivia Bacon, Jeremy Bacon, Evalyn Bacon.

Joan continued making memories in her home with her children and grandchildren. She enjoyed summertime grill outs, pool days, and sunsets. Not to mention her favorite snack, ice cream. Often saying, “You’re never too full for ice cream, it slides down the cracks!” She enjoyed hosting holidays or spontaneous visits. Anything that filled her house with family would fill her heart with joy, but leave her with an empty cookie jar.
