In dear and loving memory of JOAN ASTRID (BAULY) FAULKNER

Born October 19, 1935 to Albert Edward Bauly and Ellen (Boyce) Bauly in London, England.  Passed away peacefully in the company of family on February 12, 2018 at 82 years of age in her home of 55 years in Plainfield, Indiana.  Joan was pre-deceased by her brother, Leonard Edward Bauly of Mississauga, Ontario (Canada) who passed away in 2013.

After arriving in the United States from England in 1957 she worked at RCA in New Jersey, then transferred to Indianapolis.  There she met Bill Faulkner whom she married in 1963. They were happily married over 41 years, until his passing in 2004. They had no children.
