After graduating from high school, Joan moved to Utah with her parents in 1943. She met Wayne Lafay Romney while applying for a job and it was love at first sight. They were engaged in December and married the following June. They had 3 children in Utah; moved to Phoenix in 1952 and had 3 more children. Joan was a wonderful mother and served in various volunteer capacities in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
