It was in Caldwell, at the age of 14 that she first met the love of her life (her soul mate) Norman “Red”Metcalf and, ultimately married after high school. Their life together for the next 57years took them on a wonderful, and fulfilling journey.Together they had two great children, Tom (Rhonda) and Teresa (Kirk Lyon) and 5 Grandchildren, Brad, Lauren (Matt Stevens) and Sarah Metcalf and Sydney and Morgan Lyon. She loved spending time with her family, and it also included many friends and neighbors. Holidays always included a large, extended family, which JoAn loved. JoAn was the consummate “Mom” and grandmother to her family and many “adopted” friends. JoAn was an avid bowler, at one time carrying the highest female amateur average in Hawaii. She attended the Women’s National Bowling Conference for 26 years, representing Hawaii and later Nevada.
