Joan Winter Barsook, a long-time resident of the San Fernando Valley, died on October 11, 2020 as a result of a heart attack. She was 93 years old. Born in Chicago, Illinois, Joan moved to California in 1944 to finish high school and attend UCLA. While attending UCLA she met the love of her life, Alfred D Barsook. They married in 1948 and were blessed to enjoy 66 years together before Al passed away in 2014. Joan is survived by her three children, Bruce (Corinne) Barsook, Nanci (Jack) Ackermann and Barbara Barsook. In addition to her three children Joan was a grandmother of seven: Jonathan (Michelle) and Daniel Barsook; Michael (Ginny) Ackermann and Kristin (Greg) Belding; Danie, Matthew (aka Phil) and Gary (Natali) Schwartz, and a great-grandmother of 11: Levi and Ari Barsook; Madeline, Violet and Henry Ackermann; Tyler and Brynn Belding; Chana Rivka, Moshe, Rachel and Yoseph Schwartz.

Joan was an avid bridge player, loved to read and enjoyed working in her garden. She always was delighted to have friends and family around her. While raising a family in the San Fernando Valley, Joan and her husband also loved to travel and went to numerous countries throughout the world, particularly enjoying East Asia and the Pacific Islands.

She will be dearly missed but her memory will live on and through her children, grandchildren, great grandchildren and by all who were fortunate enough to meet her.
