Joan Louise Gray, age 88 of Grand Haven, passed away on Monday, November 27, 2023, at Robbinswood Assisted Living. She was born on January 6, 1935, in Chicago, IL, to the late James and Louise (Schuett) Scott. Joan married Glen Gray on July 28, 1951, and they celebrated 64 years of marriage before his passing on October 20, 2015.

Joan graduated from Grand Haven High School and was the owner and operator of her cleaning business, JSG Cleaning for many years. She was a member of St. Patrick – St. Anthony Catholic Parish, and loved to read, travel, and spend time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, who were the apples of her eye. Joan was a family-oriented, amazing woman who served as a former Girl Scout Leader, former Catechism teacher, and was fierce about her family, especially her children.

Joan will be lovingly remembered and missed by her three daughters: Jane (Tim) Bennett and Laura (Tom) Berg, all of Grand Haven, and Sara (Bill) Collins of Spring Lake; her son, Jeff Gray of Spring Lake; her son-in-law, Dan McWilliams; 10 grandchildren: Angela (Bill) Hull, Cortney (Shaun) Baker, Alexandra (Chris) Eckles, Mitchell (Beth) McWilliams, Amey McWilliams, Jeremiah and Lisa Bennett, Jordan Berg, Christopher (Shelbi) Gorton, and Hilary (Evan) Bridwell; 16 great-grandchildren; two sisters, Jill (Ralph) Gregus and Mollie (Arnold) Strang; brother, Greg Scott; and several nieces, nephews, and cousins.

She was preceded in death by her husband; her son, Glen Michael Gray; daughter, Cindy McWilliams; daughter-in-law, Marie Gray; seven grandchildren: Nathan and Adam Bennett, Corey, Allissa, Ashley, and Sawyer Berg, and Samuel Gray; and her siblings, Jim and Jennifer Scott.
