Joan Elizabeth Mabry, 75, of Appleton City, Missouri., passed away at Appleton City Manor in Appleton City on Sunday, June 26, 2022. She was born to Eldon and Marjorie (Stone) Mabry on June 18, 1947, in Independence, Missouri., and grew up around the Kansas City, area. She attended Van Horn High School in Independence. She married Richard R. Barton in 1964, and together they had three children: two sons, Richard Eldon and Brian Scott, and a daughter, Joan Elizabeth.
Joan supported her children by working as a secretary in various offices around Kansas City, and in 1976 she and her children moved to Appleton City to be near her parents where she worked in various jobs, including as a bank teller and for the Internal Revenue Service.
After her parents’ deaths and when her children had become adults, Joan became a manager with Casey’s Convenience Stores, which caused her to relocate outside of Appleton City. She retired from Casey’s in 2012 and settled back in Appleton City.
Her biggest enjoyment was being a grandmother and she dearly loved her dogs Casey, Sis, and Milly.
Joan is survived by her two sons, Rick Barton, Branson, Missouri., Scott (Kelly) Barton, Louisburg, Kansas.; daughter, Joan (Karl) Sieleman, Appleton City, Missouri, along with numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
