Joan Guenther, a member of Off-the-Cuff Albuquerque and Tumbleweeds clubs in Albuquerque and Hi-Plains Club in Clovis, passed away on April 12, 2018.
A long-time resident of Albuquerque, Joan was born on December 7, 1933. Joan was a mainstay at Toastmasters events in District 23 as well as International Conventions. Her zeal for Toastmasters was matched only by her passion for fun. She was always a smiling source of enthusiasm and welcomeness. If she wasn’t at a Toastmasters event, she was just as likely to be at a University of New Mexico basketball game. She was a season ticket holder for the Lobo’s games and cheered on her team in good seasons and bad.
Joan was loved by Toastmasters near and far.
Her daughter TK O’Geary, a Toastmaster and Past District 23 Governor, carries on her ardent support for both Toastmasters and the UNM Lobos.
