September 12, 1931 — May 13, 2020

On Wednesday, May 13, 2020, Joan Elizabeth Austin, ran into the arms of Jesus and family and friends at the age of 88.

Joan was born in Galveston, TX on September 12, 1931 but primarily grew up in Shreveport, LA with her 22 cousins and friendships that have lasted over 80 years. She moved to Texas in 1979 and most recently resided in Aledo, TX.

A meticulous administrative assistant, she worked for Texas Eastern for many years as well as other companies before retiring in 1993 to care for her mother. She enjoyed spending time with family, taking road trips, anything made of chocolate and doing puzzles. Joan was known for her kindness, loyalty, and her love for God.

She is survived by her three children, son, Gene Austin and his wife Denise of Tijeras, NM; daughters, Janet Austin Davis and her husband Steve of Flower Mound, TX and Lee Ann Austin Gillespie and her husband Gary of Aledo, TX, six grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. Joan was preceded in death by her parents, John Elmer and Elizabeth Clark Hart.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in her name to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital.
