Joan Preys (nee Wiemeler), 84, formerly of Oak Park, died in her sleep at her Chicago home on Feb. 6, 2018. Born in Chicago, she spent most of her grade school and high school years in a boarding school. After graduation, she attended Wright Junior College and worked for AT&T for 10 years. In 1963, she married Konstantin Preys, and they moved to Oak Park and raised a family. In 1991, the couple retired to Boise, Idaho where they were very happy for many years. They returned to Oak Park in 2009 due to Konstantin's declining health. After his death, she moved back to her old family home where she lived with her brother. 

Joan Preys is survived by her brother, George; her sons, Nick (Emi) and Michael (Erin); and her grandchildren, Natasia, Sophia and Matthew. 

There will be a Celebration of Life for her on March 2 at Skrine Chops, 7230 W. Madison St. in Forest Park from 6 until 9 p.m.
