Obituary for

A Celebration of Life Service for Joan Janet Beck will be 10:00 am Thursday, November 15, 2018 at Ladusau-Evans Funeral Home Chapel with Rev Carrell Still officiating. Burial will follow in the Dover Cemetery, Dover, OK under the direction of Ladusau-Evans Funeral Home. The family will receive friends Wednesday, from 5:00 pm to 6:00 pm at the funeral home.

On Sunday, November 11, 2018, Joan Janet Beck, loving wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother passed away at the age of 94. Joan was born August 1, 1924 in Dover, OK to Frank and Alice Ruth (Lindsey) McClelland. She grew up with a loving extended family and was proud to call her sister, Betty, her best friend. She attended and graduated from Dover High School in 1941. She met Maurice Beck and they were married on July 9, 1943 in Enid. They proudly raised two sons, Roger and Brad. Joan worked as a sales clerk for Sears for 17 years. She made many long-lasting friendships there and through their membership with Davis Park Christian Church and later Willow Road Christian Church. She and Maurice enjoyed 56 years together until his passing January 27, 1999.

Joan will be remembered and cherished as someone who loved her extended family and friends. She was an excellent cook and not only enjoyed hosting huge family gatherings, but was a superior and regular pie maker. Her friends were important to her and she enjoyed a variety of activities with them throughout the years, including weekly domino games. Joan loved to sing and proudly shared her voice with church and other choirs. She and Maurice enjoyed attending basketball games, especially Phillips, and she continued this fondness by watching our state teams on T.V.

Joan was a strong and determined woman and a thoughtful, caring friend to the end. She had a grateful heart and a kind spirit; always making sure she had properly expressed her thanks. She will be missed by many.

Joan is survived by her sons, Roger Beck and Brad and his wife Cindra Beck, both of Enid, two grandsons, David Beck and Brian Beck, three great-grandchildren and Cheryl Beck.

She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband and sister, Betty Beeman.

Memorials may be made to Willow Road Christian Church or Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation - Alzheimer’s Division with Ladusau-Evans as custodian of the funds. Condolences may be made online and the service may be viewed online at
