Obituary for Joan Averweg

March 28, 1931 - December 18, 2020
Sheffield Lake, Ohio | Age 89

Loving Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother


SHEFFIELD LAKE – Joan Averweg (nee Dobbins), 89, of Sheffield Lake passed away on December 18, 2020 and joined her husband Jack in the Lord's House. She was born March 28, 1931 in Cleveland, the only child of Ed and Evelyn Dobbins. Joan grew up in Lakewood and was a graduate of Lakewood High School where she was very active in sports as a teenager. Both of her parents were artists and she felt she inherited some of their artistic talents as she had a craft business "Out on a Limb" for eleven years.

Joan and Jack lived in Sheffield Lake for over 50 years where she loved the small town country feeling. She liked music and dance and belonged to the Avon Lake Women's Chorus for over 30 years. Joan was also an avid reader with a great memory keeping track of everything she read. One of Joan's greatest pleasures was watching her children and grandchildren participate in sports and musical events. She also enjoyed gardening and actually enjoyed pulling weeds. She adored all animals especially her fluffy little companion dog Libby. She was really funny with her own special sense of humor.

We know Joan would want to thank her friend Karen Wagner for all of her support and compassion and her neighbor Ed who was always there to help.

Joan is survived by her daughter Cindy Dietz (Dale), son Jim Averweg (Mary), grandchildren Craig Dietz (Chrindye), Kristi Hernandez (Chris), Dana Conley (Jason), J.J. Averweg (Evelyn), Jaclyn Busta (Brad), Brittany Taylor (Cody), and great grandchildren Aiden, Ashton and Greyson Dietz; Stephen, Lauren, Maddie and Adam Donat; Logan and Will Conley; Miles Averweg; and C.J. Taylor.
