Joan Elaine Quick Oct. 27, 1928-March 14, 2012

Joan Elaine Quick, 83, of Traverse City, passed away peacefully surrounded by her family Wednesday, March 14, 2012 at Munson Medical Center.

Joan was born October 27, 1928. She is the daughter of the late Harry and Hildegard (Roggelein) McGovern of Monroe. On January 31, 1947 at Christ Lutheran Church in Monroe, Joan entered into marriage with Lewis H. Quick, Jr. who preceded her in death on October 31, 1965.

After moving to Traverse City, Joan was employed at R.L. Polk, Milliken's Department Store and volunteered at the Hope Chest. Music was an integral part of Joan's life whether she was directing Jr. Choir, playing the piano or singing with her family. She enjoyed crossword puzzles, reading, cross-stitching and drawing. But she was happiest spending time with her loved ones sharing stories, laughing and playing games.

Joan loved her family and visiting with friends. She touched many lives and was loved by people of all ages. Her sense of humor, kind soul and loving heart will be remembered by all who knew her.

Joan is survived by her loving family, daughters, Barbara (Charles) Hausmann of Haslett, MI, Polly (Tom) Dilloway of Traverse City, and Madelynn (Timothy) Loucks of Painesville, OH, seven grandchildren; Martha (Rob) Davis, Gretchen (Michael) Potter, Joshua Hausmann, Lindsay (Philip) Sheridan, Brynn (Philip) Guster, Shane Dilloway and Katherine (Bart) Ward, six great-grandchildren; Noah, Reece, and Mackenzie Davis, Madeline and Abigail Potter, and Natalie Sheridan.

She is also survived by her brother, Richard McGovern of Monroe, and his family.

Visitation will be held on Sunday, March 18, from 1 to 4 PM, with a time of sharing at 3 PM at the Reynolds-Jonkhoff Funeral Home in Traverse City. Graveside committal services will be held at Roselawn Memorial Park Cemetery in LaSalle this summer.

The family would like to thank the staff at Munson Dialysis Center and Munson Medical Center for all of their special care and loving attention for Jo.

Memorial contributions may be directed to Munson Dialysis Center of Traverse City or St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Please share your memories of Jo with her family by way of the online guest book at

The family is being served by the Reynolds-Jonkhoff Funeral Home and Cremation Services, Traverse City.
