Joan Delores Barlow was born on March 31, 1937 to parents John Nicholas and Emily Barlow. She gained her wings on June 10, 2019.

She was preceded in death by her two sisters, Mrs. Grace B. Mines and Johnnie Barlow, and her parents. She is the beloved mother of Deirdre Thompson and Eric Thompson. Her heart belonged to her four grandsons, Jonathan Thompson & Jarryd Thompson, Raphael Young, and Vaugh-Eric Thompson. Her loves were her great-grandchildren, Jahrei, Justyce, Kennedy, Joel, and Malinn Thompson.

She was a proud member of the Richmond Public School Transportation Department. She served as a bus monitor for the school system, which she enjoyed. She loved the interactions with the children that she would help daily. She retired from RPS in 2016 after 26 years of dedicated service.
She leaves a host of family and friends in remembrance. In earnest, Mrs. Viola Slade was her confidant and close friend for many years. She leaves four nieces to carry her memory; Yolanda Mines, Sonia Mines-Lowry, Cassandra Mines, and Selma Dandridge. She also leaves behind two special daughters-in-law, Gwenisha Robinson, and Misha Carpenter. She will be dearly missed, always loved, and will remain forever in our hearts. Rest in Heaven and Love.
