I didn’t have the pleasure of being in Joan’s life for a long time, but the time I was able to spend with her was special! She was a beauty inside and out. My condolences to Tony! You are in my thoughts and prayers!

What a beautiful lady. She loved music and most of all her husband Tony. I remember her volunteering with Tony for CERTS at Grand Haven. At the village center at the Gym. Always ran into Tony and Joan at Publix or walking in Grand Haven. I am so glad that St Mark by the Sea was a part of their lives and got to know both Tony and Joan.
Our love to the family and especially Tony
