They had three children (Rebecca Jo Gerber, Dennis Samuel Hager, Douglas Spencer Hager) and six grandchildren (Amanda Jean Gerber, Alicia Marie Gerber, Amelia Katherine Gerber, Nathan Douglas Hager, Stephen Andrew Hager, Chelsea Adele Hager).
Joan had one brother (Thomas Lee Bartley) and three sisters (Martha Belle Bartley Weller, Lillian Irene Bartley Payne, and Karen May Bartley Kaiser). The family cook outs with hagers, wellers, bartleys, were memorable and provided tremendous means for staying connected and sharing stories from one generation to the next.
Joan was born near New Carlisle Ohio and lived in Jamestown OH while very young. She graduated in 1947 from Dayton's Patterson Co-op High School and worked at the old Home Store in Dayton OH and later at Elders & Johnson's department store and then with Elder Beerman department stores. Joan loved working in the baby and toddlers department.
Joan was a christian from her youth and maintained her faith throughout her life. This faith was passed down to her children. She was a member of Belmont United Methodist Church for many years as the Bartley's were one of the founding family's of the church and Belmont Church was the home church of the Hager family. An example of her servant heart is she fixed breakfast ever morning for her family.

Sam and Joan loved to travel and took many fun family vacations to all parts of the continental United States throughout their 36 year marriage and their most exciting vacation was visiting Hawaii.
Joan and Sam loved to garden and she would can lots of fresh vegetables. She was an excellent home style cook. Dinner time was a special family time to connect. They were not monetarily rich but sacrificed for their children who did not want for anything.
Early on in their marriage, she was the care provider for Dora Viola Hager, Sam's mother, who came to live with them, until Dora's passing.
