Our loving and devoted mother and Grammy, Twila Joan Payne Coleman , 76, of Dothan, WV died on Friday, November 22, 2019 at Ruby Memorial Hospital in Morgantown, WV.
Born December 19, 1942 at Dothan, WV she was the daughter of the late Charles Redon "Jake" and Betty Ruth Painter Payne.
A 1960 graduate of Collins High School in Oak Hill, Joan went on to graduate from the Morris Harvey College School of Nursing.
Joan was the most caring, generous person who touched so many lives with her quiet gentle way. A registered nurse extraordinaire, well respected by her peers. She worked at Plateau Medical Center where she was Pediatric Head Nurse for many years - loving and caring for her young patients as if they were her own children.
She was a member of the Dothan Community Church. A true "steel magnolia" Joan loved the color pink. The family asks that those attending the service wear a splash of pink in her memory.
