Before their union she was blessed with four children: Mary Ann, Michael, Keith Sr and Jerry Holloway, all of Milwaukee, WI. Joan took pride in being a Homemaker, She was a woman of many talents. She taught her grandchildren how to plant, grow, and cook food from the qarden in her yard. She also was a handy woman who could repair and refurbish anything. She began babysitting at a young age. After raising her own children, she babysat and helped raise her grandchildren and the children of anyone who needed her. She made sure the children she cared for came home from school to a clean house and food on the table. Joan enjoyed spending time with the children, teaching them to cook, clean, and explore their talents. She allowed the children to do her hair, makeup, manicures, pedicures, and she even ensured they had the tools they needed when she recognized their areas of interests. Joan was known for providing her grandchildren with the best gifts that their hearts desired. Joan made sure her family spent time together while hosting cookouts, Sunday and Holiday dinners, annual family outings to State Fair and the Milwaukee Public Zoo and let's not forget talent shows in her backyard for her grandchildren. In her leisure time she enjoyed shopping, especially at Walmart, music, the latest technology from radio Shack to As Seen on TV, taking pictures, videography, cooking, sewing, watching her grandchildren play, and talking on the phone about everything. Joan also loved playing pranks on her family and friends.
