Joan A Lehmann Marshall passed away on Tuesday, March 20, 2012 in Solvay House with her family by her side.
She was born in Duluth on May 10, 1936 to Wallace and Helen Lehmann.
Joan's legacy will be in the lives she touched with her kindness, generosity, and the gracious way she concerned herself with the needs of others. Joan's smile and love made each person in her life feel they were very special and she made an effort to stay connected with people who were in her life. Joan's interests were diverse as she enjoyed traveling, painting, golf and rosemaling. Joan also thoroughly enjoyed family get togethers, time with her friends, her high school reunions, class functions, and her time spent with her very special sisters in the Beta Sigma Phi Sorority, Beta Iota Chapter.
Joan also loved going to movies, reading, playing cards and attending many community productions in the theater, symphony, and local athletic events.
Joan was a gentle soul who touched the hearts of so many.
