Obituary

Joan E. Heriford, 88, of Geneseo and formerly of Rock Island, passed away Friday, October 28, 2022 at Hammond-Henry Long Term Care in Geneseo.

A visitation and memorial service will be held at Wheelan-Pressly Funeral Home in Rock Island on Wednesday, November 23. The visitation is at 10 a.m. and memorial service at 11 a.m. A private burial will follow.

Joan was born on March 4, 1934 in Moline to George J. and Lucile E. (Wright) Borst. She married Chuck Heriford on August 1, 1954. Chuck tragically passed in 1986. Joan was a member of the King’s Daughters Circle and South Park Presbyterian Church, Rock Island. She cherished relationships and kept in contact with many friends, both old and new, over the years. A well-traveled woman, Joan visited many regions of the US and multiple countries. Joan was a dedicated reader; she was also a skilled crafter and knitter. Joan had a keen fondness for Northern Wisconsin where she spent many summers fishing on the lake. Most of all, she loved spending time with her family.

Joan is survived by her four children: Holly (Wayne) Stone, Joel (Cheryl) Heriford, Julie (Richard) Work and Brad (Erika) Heriford; eight grandchildren: Jason (Anne Marie) Stone, Kelly (John Anderson) Stone, Michael (Christie) Stone, Brandon (Shea) Heriford, Alex (Mariah Allen) Heriford, Mackenzie (Adam) Winter, Rachael Heriford and Olivia Heriford; and seven great-grandchildren: Emma and Hannah Stone, Ashley and Jackson Anderson, Lucas and Ryan Stone, and Jack Heriford. She was preceded in death by her husband and parents.

The family thanks the staff at Hammond-Henry Long Term Care for their attention and kindness. Online condolences may be left to Joan’s family at www.wheelanpressly.com. In lieu of flowers, her family welcomes memorials to American Heart Association, American Diabetes Association, Shriners International, or charity of your choosing.
