I remember when Joan Smith was babysitting for my family we would always have a great time. She had fun little songs and rhymes she would sing to help calm us down when we got rowdy. I always loved when she made us her special donuts.
I had a small turtle named Giganticus as a pet. I was not the best caretaker for him and he started not doing too well. When we thought the turtle on his last legs Miss Smith started caring for him and the turtle started doing better. The next time I saw the turtle it had grown from a silver dollar size to the size of my palm and was healthy.
Miss Smith always watched out for us even as we got olde. She even continued to get us gifts for Christmas and special occasions even up to my wedding. I am thankful to have been able to know her and spend time with her.

Joan was a great part of my childhood and was like a grandparent to us Kleinhenz kids. She was our babysitter for years, and always had gifts for us during special occasions. I'll always remember baseball cards, collectable McDonalds toys, the fish in her basement, and the milkshakes and donuts we would make when she babysat.
I also remember her helping take me to get my dog Pedro from the same place she got her dog from (lab/beagle mix).
I am thankful to have had Joan in my life. This weekend I will make "Mrs Smith style donuts" with my kids in honor of her (fry "O" shaped biscuit dough in hot oil, and then add frosting or sugar).

We send our deepest sympathy to all the family of Joan Smith. She was a kind and thoughtful cousin as well as a good friend. We'll miss all her phone calls.
We can't attend the funeral because of the virus, but will have Joan and you all in our thoughts and prayers.
Love, Jim and Nancy Gallagher
