(nee Marquardt) Joan Elaine Miles passed away peacefully on July 16, 2020, at the age of 77 years. Joan was known by all for her kind, loving nature and gentle spirit. She was down-to-earth and modest to a fault, with a light-hearted sense of humor that could put a smile on anyone's face that had the pleasure to sit with her. She loved traveling, experiencing local festivals and listening to music with her husband Bill, and she especially loved Elvis. Joan, an avid reader, also enjoyed dancing and taking long walks with her very good friend and neighbor, Barb, and she always looked forward to the time she shared with her loving grandchildren. Joan, a devoted wife, mother and grandmother, is survived by her loving husband of 50 years, William Miles; daughter, Diane Paradowski, and step-children, Terry Miles, Timothy Miles, Michael (Monica Nadolny) Miles, Tammy (Mike) Braun and Patrick (Marykay Wills) Miles. Proud and caring grandma of Seth Paradowski, Dana (Nolan) Bratt, and Christie Paradowski, Naomi (Larry Detlor) Raidy, Kelly Golke and Terry, Derek, Yoshiko, Luca, Koji, and Benjamin Miles. She is further survived by her brother Taylor (Judy) Marquardt and sister-in-law, Mary Pedersen. Joan was preceded in death by beloved son, William Jesse Miles, and also her parents Benjamin and Mabel (Stone) Marquardt, sister Carol Fabian, and granddaughter Jessie Hope Paradowski.
