Joan Darlene Davis was born to Harold Dellman and Helen Edith (Hines) Harrison on November 30, 1933 in Verndale, MN. Joan was united in marriage with Duane “Butch” Davis on September 6, 1950, in Verndale. They made their home in Verndale where they raised their eight children, and a big garden for canning! Her hands were always busy with knitting, crocheting, sewing, cooking and crafting. She also loved to read, flower garden and spend days at the lake. Best of all was the time shared making memories with her family. As a lifelong Verndale resident she will be remembered as the owner of JD Ceramics and as a member of the American Legion Auxiliary, Lioness Club and Royal Neighbors. Joan was preceded in death by her husband Duane on April 23, 2015; infant children Peter and Mary; her parents Harold Harrison and Helen Harrison McClure; brothers Rod and Orv Harrison and Lee McClure; and aunt and uncle Harry and Loreda Hines.
