She married Ray Densmore on October 6, 1956 at the First Baptist Church of Lapeer. Joanne earned her Licensed Practical Nurse degree through St. Joseph’s Hospital in Pontiac.

Through the years Joanne volunteered her time on several local boards including the Lapeer County Health & Human Services Board of Directors as well as the Lapeer County Medical Care Facility (Suncrest) Board. The entire family enjoyed their years travelling throughout the country following their beloved MSU Football team (particularly the four years Mike played for the Spartans !!) … GO GREEN !!!
