Oh there's to many memories of aunt Joan.
She was such a sweet woman who loved all especially her kids and grandkids.
So glad we got to spend some time with her for her 90th birthday.
My love to all my cousins during this time.

Joanie was my friend who worked as an aide on my school bus! I worked with Joanie , Tex and my husband did too! She was always so loud and friendly! She was my moms age , that’s how I could keep up with her birthday! I called her a few weeks ago to hear she wasn’t doing well! To her children , I’m so sorry for your loss but Joni didn’t put up with crap and I’m sure she’s in a much better place! 🌺
