Joan Rauwerdink

May 9, 1943 – September 4, 2020

Loving grandmother, mother, daughter, sister, wife, Joan passed away peacefully on Friday September 4, 2020, surrounded by her sons in Grand Junction, CO. Leaving behind six grandchildren Avery, Ella, Michael, Ana, Kaity, and Tim. They were her world. Every picture they gave her a masterpiece forever cherished. Any school event or sport, something she never missed. Three sons she proudly raised; Bob, Doug, and Erik. Their wives Kathy, Kathy, and Jessie. She was the nucleus of our family; holidays, traditions, and togetherness. Preceded in death by her husband Henk and brother Don. Instead of flowers, please devote your charitable efforts to Hope West at
