In memory of
WARRICK, Joan Joan Adams Warrick passed away on January 2, 2019. She was the only daughter of Azel and Anna Frye Adams. Joan grew up in Dallas, attended Highland Park High School and SMU. She made her debut in 1947 and was a member of Kappa Kappa Gamma, The Dallas Junior League and the Dallas Woman's Council. Joan was a beautiful woman who possessed style, charm and grace (especially in high heels). She had a natural talent for decorating her beautiful homes and she loved to entertain. She loved people in general, her rescue dog - Seymore, the Dallas Cowboys and she always pulled for the underdog - go figure. She was also a poor card player, never good at math and could not cook. But Joan was at her best if you were sick or in the hospital. Whether you were family or friend, if you were sick or in trouble of any kind, she was literally by your side. She adored her children, grand-children and her parents - Azel and Anna Frye. She was generous with her time, her resources and her heart. Joan loved to laugh, loved her dogs, loved meeting and talking to people, socializing and entertaining and she loved parties complete with late night aperitif's. From Dallas to Newport Beach, she lived a charmed and extraordinary life filled with style, energy, beauty, romance, a few heartbreaks and lots of love and laughter. She spent her final years at Caruth Haven Homeplace, comfortably nestled in between Highland Park and Neiman's (the shoe department is still in mourning). Joan was preceded in death by her oldest son, Charles K (Buddy) Warrick. She is survived by her son, Andrew A Warrick and 3 grandchildren - John, Austin and Natalie Warrick A memorial service will be held Thursday, January 10th at 3 PM in Wildwood Chapel at Restland. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the SPCA.
