Joan Hope Antonson, 89, passed away Monday, December 16, 2019 at Edgewood May Creek Lodge, Walker, Minnesota.

Joan was born January 19, 1930, in New York City to Martin and Mae (Ballantine) Anderson. By the time Joan went to kindergarten, her father had remarried Hattie (Mebold) Anderson, and Joan and the family moved to Duluth. On June 13, 1948, she married the love of her life Boe Antonson. The couple lived in Turtle Lake, WI, and Duluth, MN, and then in Esko, MN, for 40 years where they raised their family. In 1999 they moved to Longville, MN and operated Chippewa Lodge with their daughter and son-in-law. In 2016, Joanie and Boe moved together to the May Creek Senior Living Campus in Walker, MN.
