Joan loved life. She loved to travel. She hiked to the bottom of the Grand Canyon, cruised Europe, Alaska, and the Caribbean, had a hole in one, and enjoyed playing cards.

My heart with prayers goes out to Jim and Maureen on the home going of his wife and her sister. I am really sorry for your loss of such a kind soul. I have known Joan since 4th grade and she came in and out of my life when ever there was a reunion of some kind, from our St. Anne/ Marian group.
Joan was always cheerful and funny, I can’t tell you how many times she made me laugh! Joan had a heart of gold and brought positive thoughts to our conversations.
My last message from her was, “I see France has opened up”. She and Jim were planning a return trip to France this fall.
Well, Joan, you can now fly wherever you want, your with the Angels….🕊
I will miss you, Joan,❤️.

I loved Joan! She was so much fun to be around, always upbeat & friendly, great conversationalist, wonderful sense of humor. I loved playing golf with Joan - she was an excellent golfer & I was with her when she got her hole-in-one on the 17th hole at Stonebridge! Jim & Joan were a great couple -a delight to golf with & have dinner with, both here in Michigan & in Naples. My husband, Mike, & I will miss her very much! Sue B

Joan was a kind and gentle soul. She was always smiling and happy. All through her health struggles she never complained about anything. I was so lucky to meet her in 1956 at St Anne’s. Years passed and we finally came together again. A true blessing. Jim I am praying for you during this time of sorrow. We were lucky to know such a beautiful person. Rest In Peace dear Joan. You will be missed. 🙏🙏🙏🙏❤️❤️❤️
