Joan Sheldon was one of Alcatraz Smedry's latest foster parents, along with her husband Roy Sheldon. Ms. Fletcher claims Joan is one of the city's finest chefs.[1]


Joan and her husband took over caring of Alcatraz Smedry around eight months prior to his thirteenth birthday. After Alcatraz destroyed their kitchen while attempting to make noodles, having lost control of his Talent again, she was all for getting rid of Alcatraz. The destruction of the kitchen was only the most recent occurrence of destruction caused by Alcatraz, with it all being too much to handle for Joan, just like it had for all the previous carers of him. Ms. Fletcher praised Joan and her husband for how long they lasted with looking after Alcatraz, well aware of his destructive tendencies.[1]

During Alcatraz's escape from the Librarian disguised as a foster care caseworker who tried to kill him, Leavenworth Smedry drove a car into the Sheldon's house.[2] This was later repaired by Librarians before either of the Sheldon's noticed and sometime prior to Alcatraz coming back after his defeat of Blackburn. Despite earlier words said by Joan about Alcatraz, she was relieved to see him again when he returned.[3]
