Joan Rork

Obituary of Joan B. Rork

This is the story of Joan Bronelle (McCoy) Rork. Joan was a sensational woman that was loved, is missed, and will always be cherished. Joan’s story starts on August 30th, 1938 in Hansen, Idaho. She was the eldest child to Dallas and Alice Reynolds. She had a younger sister and brother; Joyce Reynolds and Robert Reynolds. Joan’s family moved to Twin Falls, Idaho when she was in fifth grade where she spent the rest of her happy life. Joan spent her summers throughout her childhood with many of her cousins. Together they celebrated holidays, went camping, hiking and swimming. Every summer the "girl" cousins had a special get-together where they spent countless hours talking and laughing. An annual tradition they continue till today. Joan will be deeply missed at the next re-union. Joan graduated Twin Falls Highschool in 1956 where she met the first love of her life, Fredrick McCoy. They had a whirl-wind romance and were married in December of 1957. Together, Fredrick and Joan had three children, six granddaughters, and 40 years of marital bliss. Fredrick passed in August of 1997. As an adult she became an excellent cook, seamstress, artist, gardener, and an avid reader of books (one could often catch her reading into the wee hours in the morning). She could give anyone a run for their money in a game of cards and played often with friends. She was a kindhearted, loving person who shared what she had with many. Joan met the second love of her life, Fritz Rork, in 2007. The two were quickly smitten with each other and married in February of 2008. Fritz and Joan shared nearly 13 years of love and happiness. They were snowbirds and would escape (with friends) from the Idaho winters to Lake Havasu Arizona. In her retirement Joan realized her love for the finer things in life, thankfully her adoring husband provided her with everything she could possibly want and more. Joan loved to golf and spent many afternoons with Fritz at the Jerome Country Club followed by a cold glass of the third love of her life, Chardonnay. Loved ones that will miss Joan until they meet again are her husband Fritz Rork; her sister Joyce Mills; her son Doug McCoy and his daughters Jade, Melissa and Morgan McCoy; her daughter Denise Jozwik, her son-in-law Paul Jozwik and their daughter Samantha Jozwik; her daughter Darcy Heckathorne, her son-in-law Shawn Heckathorne and their daughters Ashley Judkins and Monika Price; her dog Molly; and lastly her many, many wonderful friends.
