Joanne was born February 20, 1935 in Essex, Missouri to the late Ralph and Glennie (Nixon) Stacy. She grew up in Michigan and at a young age she put on a pair of roller skates and "fell in love" with skating. Joanne became a competition skater and in 1950 took gold. She became a professional skater and gave skating lessons at a rink in Mt. Clemens, as well as running skating programs in three area schools. She loved sharing her love of skating with her children, nieces, nephews and all the people she taught. When they learned something new she was as excited as they were. Joanne married Kenneth Nevin on February 21, 1959 in Mt. Clemens. In 1972 the family moved to Caseville and founded Caseville Roller Skating Arena which they owned and operated until 2002. In retirement they spent time in Florida and traveling the US. Joanne loved retirement but missed skating and all the people that skated. She often said she left her heart at the roller rink. Joanne was a wonderful seamstress. She loved to design and sew costumes, clothing, draperies and upholster furniture. Joanne was a people person and always interested in others’ lives. She was gracious and graceful inside and out.
