I’ve never met anyone quite like Joan.
At 97, it seems like she’s done everything. Seen everything.
Running restaurants, working in antique shops, shoe shops, hairdressers, teaching at a young age, volunteering at art committees – the list goes on.
“I drift into things. I don’t set out to do anything. I’ve enjoyed everything I’ve done,” she says.
“I’ve had a pretty full life.”
“When I was young, I looked up at the stars and I thought ‘God, you’re up there. What am I supposed to do with my life?’ And I kind of got an answer. I felt, ‘Do what’s in front of you. Do what’s in front of you.’ And always there’s been something put in front of me.”
