Obituary for Joan Eschenbacher

Joan Eschenbacher
Joan Elizabeth Eschenbacher, age 66, of Motley passed away on Friday, May 19, 2017 at St. Otto’s Care Center in Little Falls. Joan was born on January 6, 1951 in Bakersfield, California. She married Randy Eschenbacher on July 17, 1981.
Joan loved all animals, especially her pugs. She enjoyed her time on the farm watching sheep and the beauty of God’s creation.
Having lived a life of commitment to others and her faith in Christ, Joan used her experiences while battling multiple chronic illnesses into a way to be an advocate for other patients by serving on hospital committees for patient care.
She loved family gatherings and was always ready to play games and share a new recipe she tweaked to make it “Joan’s way.” Family was important to Joan and those relationships were extended to those she worked with and the companies she worked for.
Left to cherish her memory are her husband of 35 years, Randy; children: David (Jessica) Carr of Maple Grove, Cassandra (Eric) Hines of Motley, Jessica Eschenbacher of Maplewood, MO and Landon Eschenbacher of Motley; grandchildren: Samantha Hines, Tylan Eschenbacher, Courtney Eschenbacher, Melaina Collins and Eddie Bang.
Joan is preceded in death by her parents, Wendell & Wanda Carr; son Anthony; Anthony and David’s father, Stephen Maldaver.
Funeral Service for Joan will be held on Tuesday, May 23, 2017 at 11AM at Lincoln Evangelical Free Church. Visitation will be from 10-11AM, Tuesday at the church. Interment will be at Bridgeman Cemetery, near Pillager.
