and Florence (Bohan) Dolan.  Joan
graduated from Goodrich High School in 1944 and continued to plan and attend
her class reunions the rest of her life. 


graduation she began employment at the Brownsville Canning Company and soon
married her husband of 36 years, Louis Dyer on November 11, 1950.  Over the next twelve years Louis and Joan welcomed
five daughters.  These five girls gave
them much joy while at the same time creating daily challenges for their
parents.  Mom always made sure there was
a hot lunch, a home cooked dinner, and cookies after school.

Joan began her life long career at Edith’s Bridal of Fond du Lac.  From the start she enjoyed the buying trips
to New York and Chicago and being a part of the bridal experience.  During her tenure as a Vice President of the
store, she treasured the friendships she made during her 50 years as part of
the Edith’s family.

retirement years she loved the trips to visit her children and grandchildren.  Every holiday those grandkids knew the coveted
Christmas cookies and fudge would be on their way. One of her favorite things
was her birthday trips with her daughters to Las Vegas where she would invest
her “stash”.  She also enjoyed attending
the “Irish History Club” monthly meetings with her cousin, Alice Smith.
