December 26, 1930-November 13, 2019
Joan Patricia Bohl was born on December 26, 1930 on the family ranch in Whitsett, Texas to John and Ruth McCowen. She passed from the arms of her loving family to the arms of our Lord Jesus Christ on November 13, 2019. Joan graduated from The University of the Incarnate Word in 1956 with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing. Joan was a servant-hearted professional, starting her career with the San Antonio Health Department, followed by a nearly 40-year career as the Head Nurse for the Harlandale Independent School District, which allowed her flexibility to spend time with her family and passion to work with children. Joan and her husband cherished their association with many friends, especially the St. Luke’s Catholic Church “Holy Spirit Family Guild” that was founded in 1961. Joan will always be remembered for her unconditional love for her family, kindness, strong work ethic, and seeing the best in everyone.
Joan was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Roy, of 45 years, and her parents, John and Ruth McCowen. She is survived by her children, Mark Bohl (Darla), Cathy Scales (Steve), Patricia McLeod (Doug), and Ann Bohl Deacon (Charlie). She is also survived by her grandchildren whom she adored, Troy Bohl, Brittany Smith, Tina Haden, John Housman, Samantha Mooty and Michael Karpienski, and her treasured great-grandchildren, Noel Bohl, Camden Bohl, Crew Bohl, Chapman Bohl, Gwen Smith, Emma Haden, Elijah Haden and Carter Haden. She is also survived by her two loving sisters, Marjorie MacMurdo and Lucy Krouskop.
