Joan L. (Hemb) Loebbaka, of Sheboygan, passed away Monday evening, October 10, 2022 at Sharon S. Richardson Community Hospice in Sheboygan Falls. She was 78 years old.

Throughout the years, Joan participated in Elk’s Lodge activities with Robert. The couple took pride in their large garden, and canning what they grew.  She was an avid fan of the Packers, Brewers and Elvis and enjoyed fishing on Lake Michigan, deer hunting, Packer bus trips, traveling to NASCAR races and reading. The family will cherish the memories of all the Christmas dinners they shared with Joan.
