Joan Marie Lyons, age 65 of Troy, passed away on January 14, 2017. She was the loving wife of Robert and dear mother of Stacy Casey (Michael), Kelly Watkins (Dee Hernandez) and Nolan Watkins; grandmother of Samantha Casey and Jordan Watkins. Sister of Thomas Jr. (Karen), Jeri Pappas (William) and Jannet Marshall (Kevin Cavanaugh). Also survived by many loving nieces and nephews.

She was the beloved daughter of the late Thomas and Bettie Barlow, and sister of the late James Barlow.

Family was everything to Joan. She worked at Watkins & Sons (a family owned business) for many years in sales and marketing. She went on to model at the Detroit Auto shows for years. Prior to retirement worked as concierge at The Townsend Hotel in Birmingham, Michigan. Her passion was interior design and of course spending time with her husband Bobbie and their dog (Gussie). If you were fortunate to have her in your life, you were truly blessed.

There will be a Celebration of Joan's Life presided by Rev. Craig Brundage on Friday 7 p.m. at A.J. Desmond & Sons Funeral Home, 2600 Crooks Road (Between Maple and Big Beaver), 248-362-2500. Family will receive friends Friday 2 p.m. until time of service.

In lieu of flowers, memorial tributes to the family.
