Joan Louise Booth was born on March 8, 1949 in Clyman, Wisconsin to Donald "Doc" and Geraldine (Noe) Booth. She was united in marriage with Donald Woods on June 2, 1979 at Swan City Park in Beaver Dam. She loved to go camping with her husband and children and taking trips to various state parks and campgrounds. For 16 years Joanie and her husband Don, were campground hosts at Mirror Lake State Park. Before Joanie became a campground host, she was a nanny for Nancy and Richard Zieman for 20 years - helping raise two wonderful boys that she loved like her own Ted and Tommy Zieman. Joanie was a very kind and gentle soul; always wanting to laugh and play silly jokes like her father. Joanie and Don became snow birds for the first-time last winter, taking their RV to various campsites of interest. Although, her winter adventure was far too short, we are at peace knowing she is with her parents and children this year.

Joan will be deeply missed by her husband, Don Woods of Beaver Dam; daughter, Paula Booth of Spring Green; step-sons, Donald (Stacy) Woods and Nick (Holly) Woods, all of Beaver Dam; grandchildren, Allyson Kroeze, Skyler and Shyla Woods, and Natasha Woods; brother and sisters, Donald (Gail) Booth, Laurie (Robert) Whitrock, and Diane (Jeff) Rennhack; numerous nieces and nephews; other relatives and friends. She was preceded in death by her parents; her sister, Catherine Weinberger; and two infant children, Amber Marie and Joseph John Woods.
