Joan Ellen Adam, 80, of Delphos passed away on Monday, May 22, 2023, at Vancrest Healthcare Center.   She was born on May 5, 1943, to Maurice Gene and Dorothy (Bowsher) Miller. Both preceded her in death.  In 1966 she was united in marriage to Brent B. Adam who survives in Delphos.

Joan was a member of Delphos Christian Union Church.  She was also a member of the Democratic Women’s Club where she helped with elections, and the Elida Young Farm Wives.  She also volunteered with the Allen County Jr. Fair Board.  Camping and going to the dirt track races at Eldora Speedway and Lima Land were among her favorite things to do.  She was an avid Ohio State Buckeyes football and basketball fan.
