Joan Elaine Moul, age 88,
died August 6, 2019 at Knox County Nursing Home in Knoxville, IL. She was born July 23, 1931 to George Ancel
Campbell and Novilla “June” Brown Campbell in York, Nebraska. She graduated
from McCool Junction High School in 1949.
Joan married Louis L Moul on November 3, 1949 and they had three
Joan lived most of her life
in Fairmont as a stay-at-home mom, involved in PTA and never missing the school
events of her children. She ‘kept books’
for the family trucking business, and with Louie later owned Parkside Mart in
Fairmont. After moving to Colorado she
worked at the Lone Tree Country Club in Littleton. She moved back to Nebraska to be near her
mom, and in 2006 moved to Galesburg, IL to be near her daughter.
Joan’s lifelong passion was
reading; she served on the board of the Fairmont Public Library for ten
years. When she moved to an Assisted
Living Home, she set up a library outside her apartment for other residents to be
able to read her large-print books.
Joan enjoyed sports, hunting
‘coons with her dad, fishing, and pheasant hunting in the fall. She treasured being part of the bowling
league with her close friends and many stories were told about the trips to the
bowling tournaments. She loved watching baseball, golf and football –
especially the Nebraska Cornhuskers.

(Bob) Moberg of Galesburg, Illinois and son Louis L Moul, Jr. (Sheryl) of
Longview, Washington, grandchildren Zaac (Chelsea) Moberg, Heather (Allen)
Smith, Jeff (Molly) Trumble, Andrew Trumble, Ashley (Michael) Wagner, seven
