Joan B. Zeatlow

September 20, 1934 — October 13, 2023


Joan (Angle) Zeatlow passed away peacefully, surrounded by love, on October 13th, 2023.

Joan was born in Berlin, WI on September 20th, 1934 to Ethel and Fenton Angle. Joan grew up in the country where she learned to love all God’s creatures, and was involved in 4H. She was the oldest of three and always shared a close bond to her sisters Connie and Mary.

Joan married the love of her life, Art Zeatlow, on April 14th, 1975 and they spent their lives together in Brandon, WI.

Joan was a devoted woman of God and loved reading her daily devotions. She spent many years attending Our Saviours United Church of Christ in Ripon, WI where she enjoyed greeting and warmly welcoming all who walked in the door. Part of Joan’s ministry was taking the time to write out cards for all the members, wishing them happy birthday and well wishes.

Joan was always a helper and loved serving others, including the Hayes family that were a very special part of her life for many years. Up until the end of her life, she enjoyed helping out others at Lake Pointe Villa settings tables, watering the flowers, and getting the mail.

Joan’s family and friends were the most cherished and important part of her life and she loved taking pictures and being in the company of those she held dear to her heart.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Art Zeatlow, sister, Mary Zuehlke, half sister, Loretta Smith, niece Debra Hildebrandt, nephew Craig Zuehlke, and brothers-in-law, Bob Hildebrandt, and Norm Zuehlke.

Joan will be forever loved and remembered by her dear sister and best friend, Connie Hildebrandt, half sister Sue (Wayne) Neumann, nephews Dave Hildebrandt and Keith (Julie) Zuehlke, niece Pam (Jerry) Padilla, great-nieces and nephews, Hannah (Joe) Briggs, Holly Hildebrandt, Hunter (Brittany) Hildebrandt, Austin (Amanda) Padilla, and Lexi Zuehlke, great-great-nieces and nephews, Clove and Vernon Briggs and Graham Hildebrandt, and many wonderful friends including Kay Quinn and Sharon Peters.

Joan’s family would like to thank the staff at Lake Pointe Villa, including Kelly and Abbey, and AseraCare Hospice, especially Tammy Fox; for her amazing level of care given to Joan.

You will forever be in our hearts and memories, Joanie.
