Joan Keck, born in 1946, met her Lord and Savior on her 67th birthday, Wednesday, October 30, 2013. She is survived by her beloved husband and best friend of 48 years Thomas Keck. She has two loving children Sharon Clayton and Stephen Keck and daughter-in- law Sharene. She was also blessed with four grandchildren, Matthew Clayton, Bethany Keck, Savannah Keck and Zachary Keck. She has two siblings, Kenneth Miller and Carol Wooten.
Joan was employed as a Property Manager for over 34 years at Raymus Development. She was a resident of Lathrop for 34 years. She and her husband Thomas pastored many churches in Lathrop, French Camp and Watsonville.
She enjoyed shopping, singing and playing the piano. Her pride and joy in life was her family. Her grandchildren were the apple of her eye as she always took time out to listen, care and love them unconditionally. Joan was a natural care taker, always treating everyone as if they were her own family. Joan was a true woman of God with a loving spirit that was immeasurable. She will be missed by all who loved her.
