Joan was born October 14, 1937 in New Munich to Felix and Elizabeth (Eickhoff) Massmann. She grew up on a farm near New Munich and moved to St. Cloud at 16 where she worked as a housekeeper at the St. Cloud Hospital. Joan then married Rupert Weyer on August 19, 1958 at Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in New Munich, and they later bought a hobby farm in Sartell where they raised their family together. Joan was a member of St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church where she was a member of the Christian Mothers and the Quilting Group. She enjoyed gardening, crocheting, quilting, old time music, dancing, playing cards especially 500, and baking bread, cookies, and apple pies. Joan loved spending time at the cabin on Lake Shamineau the last 44 years. She was good at fishing and could out-fish Rupert. Joan was gentle, thoughtful, ambitious, and artistic.
