Joan Lavonne Mize

January 3, 1930 — October 16, 2018

Joan was born January 3, 1930, Bronson, IA, the daughter of Willard and Rozena (Oehlerking) Fish. She graduated from Bronson High School in 1948. After graduation, she married her high school sweetheart George Mize October 9, 1948. Joan and George started a life together as farmers. They had many ups and downs, but always kept family first. A few of their hobbies were competing in tractor pulls across northwest Iowa, square dancing, and traveling. They were happily married for 42 years. Unfortunately, George passed away April  of 1991. Joan loved her husband dearly and cherished her memories with him forever. Her love for him stayed strong through her last 27 years without him. Joan enjoyed watching each of her grand-kids grow up. She tried to support each of them in everything they did, whether it was at a first grade spelling bee or the state-wrestling tournament. She always wanted to be there, cheering for them as loud as she could. She also loved taking dance classes at the senior center in Sioux City, IA. Her favorite part of the year was when she would have her Follies performances and all of her family could come watch. She also had many dear friends she enjoyed spending time with. Joan is survived by sons, Jeff Mize, Greg (Linda) Mize, daughters, Vicki Austin, Terrie Mize, sisters, Betty Rose Wall, Marjorie Amick, many grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and close friends. Joan was preceded in death by her parents, husband, sister Evelyn Baker, brother Leo Fish, and grandsons Paul Austin, Cory Nickles.
