Joan Middleton was a treasure to her family and everyone who ever had the opportunity to spend
time with her. Born in London, England, to Arthur and Ethel Barnett, she was one of four children. Joan had a zest for life. She loved to travel, especially to Michigan, and was a member of the British Mayflower Club. She loved to dance and spent many wonderful times with her friends as an Emblem Club member. But most of all, she loved and adored her family, her many friends and extended family. Her gentle, dignified, caring nature and clever, witty sense of humor, earned her the affectionate title of “Queen Mum”.
She will be deeply missed by her children Laureen, Sandi & Peter, Larry & Kathy, her grandchildren Chris, Carlisa, Michael & Nicolle, Kathy, Julie, Michael,Great Grandchildren Nick, Kristin, JJ, and Lilah, as well as her dear brother Derek, sister Hetty, additional family members and a wide circle of dear friends.
