Three grandsons, Shawn (Adriene) Ludlow, Travis and Justin Skorheim; and great-granddaughter Celeste Ludlow.
Joan married the love of her life, Robert Skorheim, on June 10, 1950. She loved to tell people she was a teenage bride, if only for a day. Robert preceded her in death on April 7, 2014, after 63 wonderful years together. They moved to Bailey, Colo. in 1995.
Her loves included her children, grandchildren, travel, painting, stained glass and gardening. She lived a full life, full of love, and will be sadly missed by all who knew her.
The family wishes to thank the wonderful and caring staff at Mount Evans Hospice for everything during this difficult time, especially Kris, Brenda and Mary.
