Joan is really something special. She has four kids and two grandkids and is looking for love again after losing her husband of 32 years to pancreatic cancer. Joan is proud of herself for starting a new career in this chapter of life and for how resilient she’s been through many unexpected life changes. When she’s not working, Joan loves listening to Elton John, hanging with her dog, and cooking a delicious meal. Joan describes herself as a loving mother and a hard worker who would love to find someone to enjoy life with. She’s happiest when she’s at the beach with her family and is looking for a family man to blend her life with. Joan is a total catch and we think Gerry will have no problem seeing it too.

  • Joan loves dancing after a couple glasses of wine.
  • Joan enjoys historical museums.
  • Joan’s favorite food is a big, juicy burger!
