Joan E. Westling

Joan E. Westling passed away on July 12, 2016.

Funeral services will be 10 a.m., Thursday at Davis Funeral Home in Riverton. Father Demetrio Penascoza officiating. Burial will follow at Mountain View Cemetery in Riverton.

She was born June 7, 1932 in Rochester, N.Y., the seventh child of Joseph and Elsie Isaac. She met a young Airman jet mechanic at a USO dance and they were married May 16, 1953.

The mother of three sons and a beautiful daughter, Joan loved being an Air Force wife and mother. When Walt retired from the Air Force in 1971, Joan and family moved from Las Vegas to the big city of Morton. Several years later, Joan surprised the family with news of a fifth and final child, the second daughter she always wanted so Joanne would have a sister.

She was passionate about her family and she enjoyed doing crafts and crochet. She also loved camping with the family where she got a break from cooking and cleaning. Always a devout Catholic, Joan was a member of the Saint Edwards Catholic Church in Morton/Kinnear for more than four decades.

She will be truly missed by all as she was a joy to be around. She was greeted into everlasting life by her husband Walt, daughter Joanne, son-in-law Delmar Morris and two brothers and three sisters.

Joan is survived by son Dave Westling and his wife Lisa Botham, and granddaughters Lauren (Dan), Kayli, and Adar; son Walter J. Westling, and grandsons Joey (Shandra), Christopher (Koryn) and step grandchildren Dan McDonald (Amy), Jennifer Person (Corey) and Ricky Andrews; son Gerard Westling and wife Karla; granddaughter Amanda Morris; daughter Kristi Albrandt and husband Derrin, and grandchildren Kinzi and Tehgan, as well as three great grandchildren, sister Dottie and brother Walt and numerous nieces and nephews.
