Joan was born December 18, 1932 to Theodore and Gladys (Millan) Weiland in Oacoma, SD. She was the oldest of six siblings. Joan attended Chamberlain School.

She spent her whole married life as a farmer’s wife on two different farms north of Pukwana until they moved into Pukwana in 1991.
She will be remembered for the deepest love of her family which was the highlight of her life whenever they were around. She loved having family at her house and the more, the better.
