    I am sorry to read about Joan’s passing. I always enjoyed visiting with her. She always was dressed no nicely and made sure her appearance was fashionable. I met Joan in a doctor’s office I had worked at many years ago. I always thought highly of Joan. She will be missed.

    Sorry to hear that Joan has died. She was always so friendly. She always wanted to do something for you and always listened to your problems even when she was suffering. Although it has been awhile since we saw her, she will be missed & thought of with good memories.
