On September 8, 1962, Joan married her beloved husband, James Theodore "Ted" Greer at Our Lady's Church in Leonardtown, MD. Together they celebrated 56 wonderful years of marriage. Joan was a devoted wife, loving mother and grandmother. She loved the water and anything to do with it, such as crabbing, fishing and waterskiing. She had a green thumb and grew bountiful vegetable gardens which she enjoyed canning and freezing her harvest. She was very social and loved hosting family dinners, picnics and holidays. She was an excellent cook and hostess. She enjoyed playing the slots at Dover Downs and the beaches at the Outer Banks. She loved her fur babies, which included Kali the German Shephard, Kirby a Bull mix, Ruthie the yellow cat, and Ethel the gray cat.
