Joan Kroll

Joan Viola Kroll, age 72, lost her battle with pancreatic cancer November 4, 2013 while surrounded by her loved ones.
Joan was full of life and full of love for her family and friends. She was born Joan Viola Sonterre on July 18, 1941 in St. Paul to Valeria and Albert Sonterre. Joan married the love of her life, Hilary Kroll, on May 7, 1960 at St. Columba. They moved to Zimmerman in 1971 with their three children and became members of St. Pius X Catholic Church.
Joan worked as school bus driver for the Princeton School District where she enjoyed spending time with the kids and her co-workers for 40 years.
Joan loved spending time in Arizona in the winter months with her husband of 53 years and many of her friends. They attended shows, played bingo and soaked up the sun. She also loved to take trips to Branson, Mo. to watch shows and listen to music. She spent most of her months in Minnesota attending her granddaughters sporting events and at the lake with family and friends.
Joan was very outgoing and enjoyed riding ATVs, fishing, reading, cooking, and playing cards. She was a friend to everyone. Her love for family and friends was a blessing to all. She especially loved her grandchildren and great-granddaughter and talked about them to everyone she knew.
Joan is survived by her husband, Hilary Kroll, of Foley, daughters Sharon Leider (Tim) of Princeton, Lisa Plante (Al) of Sacramento, Calif., son Kirk Kroll (Terri) of Zimmerman, brother Richard Sonterre (Sandy), grandchildren Amy, David, Michael, James, Amanda, Josh, Hannah, Taylor and great-granddaughter Isabella (whom she called Precious) and many nieces and nephews.
Joan is preceded in death by her father Albert, mother Valeria, and brothers Robert and Clifford.
A funeral service was held on Friday, Nov. 8 at Christ Our Light Catholic Church in Princeton.
