JOAN A. OTTENS

(WAGNER)


Age 89, of Markham, passed away on her terms, Sunday, December 24th, 2023 at Beecher Manor in Beecher.


There are many things we can say about Joan Ottens; the wife, mother, sister, grandmother, great grandmother, aunt and friend. She was proud, stubborn and all heart. She married her husband Otto Ottens on June 22nd, 1957, and gave the world four beautiful daughters. It is through them that her love continues to nurture and spread like the roots of a tree.

Joan was preceded in death by her parents, Joseph & Mary Wagner (Prendergast), husband, Otto Ottens and granddaughter Kelly Kintner.
