Joan Steinert, 78, of the Town of Saratoga, passed away on April 4, 2022 at her residence.

Joan was born on November 1, 1943 to John and Vivian (Johnson) Hospodar in Illinois. She married Dennis Homme in Evansville, MN, in 1962 and they had two sons, David and Knute.

Joan loved her family - especially her grandchildren, Wisconsin Rapids Rafters baseball games, gardening, meat raffles, shopping, her friends, keeping her house clean, and nature. She had a zest for life and was a strong and independent woman. Joan never backed down from a challenge.
