Joan Eleanor Allwin

November 23, 1936 — March 31, 2024

Joan Eleanor Allwin, born in Sioux City, Iowa, was a beloved soul who touched the lives of many. Her journey on this earth ended on March 31, 2024, in Independence, Missouri. She was 87 years old.

Education played a significant role in Joan's life. She graduated from Convent of the Sacred Heart High School in 1954 and later pursued higher education, graduating from St. Mary's College in 1958. Her thirst for knowledge and growth shone through her academic achievements.

Joan's passion for medical technology led her to intern at Providence Hospital to become a certified medical technologist with ASCP. She dedicated numerous years of service at Lab Corp Reference Lab before retiring in 2005. Her commitment and hard work left a lasting impact on those she worked with and the healthcare community as a whole.

Beyond her professional and academic life, Joan found immense joy in various hobbies and interests. She cherished moments spent with her grandkids above all else. Capturing memories through photography, expressing herself through painting, and nurturing life through gardening brought her happiness. She also enjoyed traveling and made unforgettable memories traveling to Rome, the Vatican, and Egypt to witness the wonders of the world.

In Joan's departure, she leaves behind a legacy of love and warmth that will forever be treasured by her surviving family and friends. While we mourn the loss of such a remarkable individual, let us also celebrate the profound impact she had during her time with us.

Joan is survived by her sons, John Allwin and Paul Allwin (Jamie); and grandchildren, Joellie, Robert and Amanda Allwin.

She is preceded in death by her beloved husband, Vernon (Ole) Allwin; her parents, Paul and Grace Fore; and daughter, Lisa Allwin.
