Laguna Beach, California
Joanne was born and grew up in Laguna Beach, California. She was the first daughter of Mildred and Stan (Doc) Hogan. Joanne was a beautiful and loving daughter, wife, mother, grandmother, aunt, and sister.
Growing up in Laguna Beach during the 40s and 50s was a wondrous time, filled with beach days and movie nights. Joanne was often seen swimming out beyond the waves at Main Beach with her kid sister Jacquie tagging along at the shore, and tap dancing at Barbara Peyton’s Dance Studio. Joanne and Jacquie performed tap dance routines together, and she and her friend Marilyn sang in Talent Shows at LBHS. Joanne also became the 1st Runner-up in the Miss Laguna Beach Contest of 1955, by far . . .
