Resident Highlight: Joan Roberts
Joan has lived in the Zeeland area for most of her life and loves to talk about her Dutch Heritage. Growing up in the family home that her grandfather built was very important to her, she didn’t leave until she met her husband. In 1955 she married her husband and they had 4 children, 3 boys and a girl. She looks forward to their visits and outings with them. Joan says that she raised great children and that she is very proud of them. The warmer weather of Florida is better than the weather here she says. The colder months of Michigan were spent in Florida where she visited with friends and had fun. In her spare time she likes to draw and look at house plans, and all kinds of art mediums. Bartending at the Holland VFW brought a lot of joy to her life. She loves to tell stories of people that she met there and how she liked to socialize with everyone that came in.
