Joan was born in Chicago, IL on March 18, 1911 and worked as a bookkeeper for the County of Los Angeles in the Public Administrator's office for twenty-five years. She was the first-born of six children born to Michael and Marie Pollack who were born in Czechoslovakia. She travelled extensively around the world...kissed the Blarney Stone, rode a camel at the pyramids and took tea with a bedouin prince. She enthusiastically enjoyed sailing Lake Michigan with her late husband, Stanton. Left to mourn her passing are; her only child, daughter, Bonnie (Mrs. Robert) Hutchins of Torrance, Sisters: Ernestine Pollack of Chicago, IL and Ruth (Mrs. Emil) Heirendt of Franklin Park, IL and her devoted Granddaughter, Francesca Hutchins of Long Beach, CA.
