Obituary for Joan Edgar

Joan Edgar, 86, of Great Falls, died of natural causes April 14, 2020, at Peace Hospice. There will be a celebration of her life at Holy Spirit Catholic Church when it is safe to gather again.

Joan was born in Butte, Montana, in 1933, to Gerald and Emily (Fults) Holland. She was raised in Butte and attended Butte High School where she was a twirler in the band. She was so proud of her Butte Irish Catholic Democrat heritage. She married her high school sweetheart, John, and they had four children whom they raised in Great Falls. John passed away in 2015, and not a day went by that she did not miss him. She was a warehouse worker, a teachers’ aid, a yoga instructor, and retired as a clerk. She and John raised many Labrador Retrievers which they entered in field trials all over the Northwest. In her quiet times, she loved to read. Her Catholic faith meant everything to her, and she was active in PCCW, Catholic Daughters, and the soup kitchen at St. Ann’s.

Joan was preceded in death by her husband, John; daughter, Roberta “Bobbi” Gleason; parents; and sister, Geraldine Lasley. She is survived by her children, Gerald (Vickie) Edgar, Sherri (Michael) Walstad, and John (Susan) Edgar; seven grandchildren, and many great-grandchildren.

Memorial contributions may be made to Holy Spirit Catholic Church or Peace Hospice of Great Falls.
