Like her husband and the entire Simpson family, her external foster family background made her an embodiment of a stereotypical ideal model family (including her being a mother and housewife who cooks and clean, having an office-worker for a husband as well as having huge house fit for a general family (which consists of two-stories and a basement) and a family station wagon).
 
 
Joanne lived on Prescott Lane with her husband Phil, where they spent the remainder of their days supplying for the brief foster children they helmed after the harrowing truth that Joanne cannot give birth to any biological children.

Joanne Simpson is a foster mother, whose foster family background made her an embodiment of the stereotypical ideal model family.

Child's Play 2 (1990)

Joanne instantly felt compassion for Andy Barclay, unlike her husband Phil, who is wary of his distant and strange behavior. Regardless of Phil's worries, they decide to take him in. As Andy gets settled in, he sees a Good Guy doll named Tommy, which had been previously owned by another foster child.

When Andy reacts with momentary horror, Phil wonders what is going on, but Joanne has some understanding of Andy's past fears and offers to get rid of the toy so as not to cause trouble. At one point, she discovers that her family's priceless ornament, passed down for generations, had been broken by Chucky, who used it to destroy Tommy so he could assume the identity to remain in the Simpson residence and close to Andy.

Joanne fights with Phil's constantly about Andy's past, and alleged criminal insanity. However, when Phil is murdered, it leaves her grief-stricken and disillusioned about Andy. She angrily holds him accountable, and instead of having him charged with murder, she packs his things and sends him back to the orphanage. Kyle, knowing that Andy likely did not kill Phil, tries to reason with her, but Joanne vindictively ignores her.
