Joan Marie Hrostowski, age 90, of Big Rapids, passed away Thursday evening, February 18, 2021 at Spectrum Health-Reed City Extended Care with her family at her side. The daughter of Lawrence & Evelyn A. (Resseguye) Graboskey, she was born on July 17, 1930 in Big Rapids. On February 26, 1949, she married Charles Joseph Hrostowski and together they raised three children and enjoyed almost 42 years of marriage until Charles passed away on January 11, 1991.

Joan enjoyed shopping, social gatherings, and was known as “Bingo Queen” at Reed City Extended Care.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband; three brothers, Scott, Junior, and Bob; and her sister, Betty. Surviving are her children Judy & Jerry Bennett of Big Rapids, Ron & Sandy Hrostowski of DeWitt, and Ed & Janet Hrostowski of White Cloud; one grandchild Lisa & Tommy Stevens of Big Rapids; three great-grandchildren, Autumn, Alexis, and Little Lisa; her sister, Carol of Indianapolis, Indiana; and several nieces and nephews.

Honoring her wishes, cremation has taken place. Instead of flowers, Joan would have appreciated contributions in her memory to ARC of Mecosta County, as Joan was a cat lover and fed all strays (Animal Rescue Coalition, 18400 220th Ave., Big Rapids, MI 49307).
