Love you and miss you Ma Berube. Love our talks while I was working and not. 🤣😋😍 Sticking your tongue out at me and vice versa was always showing the love . Most of all favorite memory was at Tony and Nancy's house and you let me fill your mouth with whipped cream out of bottle. Hugs and love

I knew her as Miss Joanie when she worked at Federal Suppliers Guide with my husband and my sister. She was always full of laughter and ready with a hug whenever I saw her. We have lost a great lady but heaven has gained an angel.
