Joan Bruns Koehne, 76, of Marble Falls passed away Aug. 13 in Victoria.
Joan was born April 30, 1937 in Marble Falls to the late Martin Bruns and Lois Crownover Bruns of Round Mountain. She graduated from Marble Falls High School followed by San Marcos College.
She married Monroe Koehne in December 1960.
While working as a dental assistant in Victoria for Robert Finley, DDS, being a loving wife and raising three boys, she made sure there was time to be a little league team mom, den mother for cub scouts, active member of the PTA and loyal member of the Stroman Raider Booster Club and active church member.
In 1985, she and Monroe moved to Llano to take care of her aging parents. She then became secretary of the Bluebonnet Baptist Church in Sunrise Beach for many years. Then, while also raising her granddaughter, she volunteered for five more years of cheer/sports booster club and PTO duties in Johnson City.
She enjoyed hunting, fishing, canning, baking, reading and caring for others.
She touched many lives from her 25 years of calling Victoria home to the 28 years of loving Hill Country life where her life began. Through her difficult battle with Alzheimer’s and dementia in the last year, her final months were spent enjoying life surrounded by her family.
Joan is survived by her husband of 52 years, Monroe; sons, Monroe (Patsy) Koehne, Jr , Martin David (Melissa) Koehne and Lonnie Wayne (Brenda) Koehne; granddaughters, Hollie (Brian) Morris, Wendy Salas, Callie Koehne, and Sarah Koehne; grandsons, Chris Rangnow, Matt Koehne, T.J. Koehne, Steven Koehne, and Randy Koehne; great grandchildren, Chelsea Hernandez, Ty Salas, Lexi Morris, Rhiannon Salas, and Danielle Salas and brothers–in-law, Harvey Koehne and Charles Koehne.
She was preceded in death by her parents and infant daughter, Sarah Jane Koehne.
Funeral service will be Saturday, Aug. 17, 2013 at 9 a.m. at Clements-Wilcox Funeral Home Chapel with Charles Waugh officiating. Interment will follow at Comanche Creek Cemetery, near Llano. A gathering for family and friends will also be held in Victoria on Sunday, Aug. 25, 2013 from 1-4 p.m. at 407 Dove.
