Joanne was born the daughter of Harland and Magdalen (Schwandt) Hintz on February 5, 1937, in Horicon, WI. She was united in marriage to Paul Hayward on July 20, 1963, in Waukesha, WI. Joanne was a faithful member of St. John Ev. Lutheran Church in Mayville.
Joanne worked for over 20 years at WE-Energies as an assistant dispatcher. She was a member of church choirs and also the Ladies Aid. Joanne loved to get together with friends for their card club. It seemed that the cards were just an excuse to get together to chit chat and snack. She also enjoyed her Red Hat Society and took great pride in getting dressed up. Joanne had a love for lighthouses and their beauty.
Joanne is survived by her children: Carrie (Mark) Metzger of Hartford, Lisa (Pat) Beaver of Oconomowoc, and Art (Michelle) Hayward of Kingwood, Texas; Grandchildren: Maureen (special friend, Trevor Mundt), Paul Metzger, Rachel Beaver, Robert (Samantha) Beaver, and Isabella Hayward; and a brother Tom (Lynn) Hintz of Tennessee. Joanne is further survived by nieces, nephews, other relatives, and friends.
Joanne is preceded in death by her parents; husband, Paul; granddaughter, Christine Metzger; and her sister and brother- in-law, Carol and Curtis Peters.
The family wishes to extend their deepest appreciation and thanks to Prairie Ridge Assisted Living and Generations Hospice for all the love and care they provided to Joanne.
