Joan was born on August 26, 1930 to her parents Lee B. Henry, Sr. and Matilda (Augustine) Henry. She was raised in Keota, Iowa and graduated from Keota High School in the Class of 1948. Joan then graduated from the Ottumwa Beauty School in 1949. She worked in Ottumwa as a licensed beautician until she was united in marriage to Marvin E. Walker on November 17, 1953. They relocated to Marshalltown, Iowa where she also worked as a beautician until they settled in Eldora, Iowa where they raised their three daughters. Marvin passed away on December 1, 1974. Joan owned and operated her own business in Eldora, named Joan's Beauty Salon, until her retirement in 1996.

Joan was a long-time member of the Eldora United Methodist Church. She was also a member of Eastern Star. Joan loved music and dancing. She enjoyed many years of ballroom dancing with her husband and even continued to enjoy dancing after Marvin's passing. She enjoyed being in her kitchen cooking and baking for her family. Joan loved to be outdoors in the sun, especially while tending her flower garden. Joan was a joyful person with a wonderful sense of humor, who made everyone she met feel special. Her true joy in life came from spending time with her daughters and her grandchildren.
