The cleanest solution to this is to have her gmail set up to forward to
joan at hostname.foo.com (not @foo.com to avoid a mail loop), and have
hostname.foo.com running a mail server to accept mail for her account
(and any others like this). If you wanted to get fancy you could make
hostname.foo.com a secondary MX that forwards mail for @foo.com to the
primary MX (gmail) but that's likely to be a backdoor for spam and
probably not worth it.

There's nothing remarkable about it. All one has to do is hit the
right keys at the right time and the instrument plays itself.
