Obituary for Joan "Joan Sloan" C. Page

Joan C. “Joan Sloan” Page, 84, passed away peacefully, in Peoria, on May 14, 2018 at 11:32pm and entered into God’s heavenly kingdom; reuniting her with loved ones who preceded her in death.
Joan was born on a Friday the 13th in April 1934, a daughter of Amber and Clara Short. Living up to her maiden name, Joan was short of stature. But what she lacked in height, she made up for with her immeasurable heart and soul.
She is survived by her baby daughter, Chritty (Steven) Harper of Peoria, her grandsons, Joshua C.M. (Gina) Hoggatt and their son Austin Smith of Pekin, Zachary C.M. (Megan) Harper of Oregon , Travis J.P. Harper of Normal, and great-granddaughter, Zoey Sloan Harper of Oregon; whom she was able to hold in her arms, kiss, and take generational pictures with last June.
Also surviving are her niece, Linn Cunningham of Arizona, and best friend of over 60 years, Trish (Melvin) Turner; whom she was able to spend special time with last month.
She was preceded in death by her first-born daughter, Sandra “Sam” Hoggatt this past March, her parents, infant daughter Connie Joan, love-of-her life and husband Melvin F. Sloan (married 13 years), great friend and husband Pete Page (married 36 years), beloved sister Barbara Hougham, and nephew Danny Hougham.
Joan worked at Rembrant (Highfill) Photo Studio for over 31 years before retiring in 1986. Later in life, she volunteered at OSF as a Eucharistic Minister.
She had her fair share of medical issues over the years, but you would not have known it by her everyday appearance. She loved to start each day by preparing her hair and makeup to look just right. People would often compliment her on her appearance, which made her feel like a million dollars even though she was suffering internally. 
Joan appreciated and treasured all of the family & friends who attended her daughter Sam's memorial services in March. Please always keep your last encounter with Joan in your hearts. Her immediate family will be holding a private memorial service; there will be no traditional visitation. Cremation Rites have been accorded.
In lieu of flowers, Joan’s family encourages you to extend the priceless gift of spreading love onto others. She loved receiving phone calls and visitors in her home. In that spirit, please consider taking some time out of your day to call, visit, or otherwise connect with the special people in your lives and remind them that they are loved. Joan was deeply loved and will be forever missed, but her family finds peace in the knowledge that she will be watching over them from above.
