Joan Huddart Walker, 89, was born on November 14, 1932, in Cheyenne, Wyoming and passed away December 3, 2021, at home with her family. She was raised by her parents, Frank and Thelma Huddart in Cheyenne until they later divorced. Thelma married Slim Andreson, and they later moved to run Andresen Jewelry. Joan finished high school and also met the love of her life, Lewis Walker. Joan never liked being an only child, so her mother marrying Slim gained her 2 brothers, Tom and Jerry.
After graduation she attended Northwest Community College in Powell. She began working for Dick Jones Trucking handling their bookkeeping and married Lewis in April 18, 1953 and Lewis began working at the service station during this time. In July of that same year, Lewis and Joan moved to California once Lewis joined the army. They were transferred to Arkansas shortly after and they stayed there for 18 months. Their first son, Mike, was born in May 1955 and a couple months later, in July, they moved back home and bought the station Lewis had been working for and successfully ran the business together for 65 years.
In June 1957 they had their second son, Greg. Later on, when the boys got married and had families of their own, she had the pleasure of spoiling 4 grandchildren. Jill, Katie, Stacy & Christy.
