Joan is my first cousin, a person I saw often growing up, as my sisters and I visited the Lieb home on Windsor Avenue in Upper Darby. My father and her mother were brother and sister and enjoyed each other's company, often laughing together. Joan also had that infectious laugh. She would be talking, on any subject, and start laughing. You had to join in. She was "full of life" and easy to love. We remember especially her devotion to her mother Marion in her last years. She is already greatly missed. With sincerest sympathy to Ken and the family on the loss of the lovely Joan.
