Joan was born Dec. 6, 1931, in Pembroke, Ky., to the late George B. Thompson & Fanny Mae (Hendricks) Mitchell. She was united in marriage on Sept. 22, 1950, to Charles Gordon Crady and shared 58 loving years together, until his death in 2009. Joan was a very hard worker all of her life. She was a faithful wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. She loved to go camping and enjoyed the time she spent with her family. Shopping, going to yard sales, dining and traveling with her daughter and son-in-law were some of her favorite past times, but her greatest joy was spending time with her great-grandchildren. She was anxiously waiting the birth of her first great-great-grandbaby in August.

Survivors include her three children, Robby Crady, Kathy Roydes and her husband Gary and Ronnie Crady; brother, Robert Thompson and his wife Delores; sister, Nita Gervin and her husband Al; five grandchildren, Tammy Blayton and her husband Bubba, Ted Mann and his wife Laise, Joy Bline and her husband Phillip, Jacob Crady and Matthew Crady; 10 great-grandchildren, Trent Galbreath and his wife Morgan, Trevor, Tabetha and Blake Blayton, Zack, Cory, Tyler and Skyler Mann, and Makenzie and Hunter Bline; and a host of step-grandchildren, step-great-grandchildren, and one step great-great-granddaughter.
