My deepest sympathies. We just learned of your Moms passing. May you find peace in the memories and love. I will always remember her amazing outfits and sporty car. We were looking forwarded to being able to visit them after covid restrictions were lifted. We had brunch with the shortly after they moved to their new apartment last winter. They will be missed.

To the family: I am very sorry for your loss. I occasionally volunteered with Joan at Select Seconds. I remember her as a cheerful and kind lady. I remember Tony also. He worked the register. He was also fun to know. It’s very sad to lose them both within such a short timeframe. They’re eternally together in heaven. My condolences.

Joan was a beautiful person, inside and out! She was witty . her zest for life, was contagious, her compassion, thoughtfulness, beautiful smile, love of travel, rug hooking and oh so many more gifts and talents. I admired her dedication to Tony through his last years. They loved to laugh and enjoyed their lives to the fullest! To me, Joan was a true friend who showed all those who knew her how to live out our "old age" with grace. She volunteered at Mt. Vernon Hospital and then their thrift shop right up until recent years. She faithfully went to her exercise classes until the last year or so.
No one would ever know Joan was 91. We will miss her. Sending our sincere sympathy to her entire family. She loved all of you so very much. Cassie and Don Rogan.

My family and I have known Joan and Tony for a long time. They were the first friends me made at Good Shepherd Parish. Both of them were very welcoming and Tony was in my 9am ushering team. We shared meals together and enjoyed their company. Joan, Tony is waiting to welcome you. May you both rest in peace. My condolence to the family.

Dear children, how hard it must be to lose both parents in a short space of time. My last conversation with your Mom made me sad as I realized how depressed she was with her life situation. I pray that now her soul is at rest and I will cherish memories of times spent with your parents.
RIP dear friend🙏
