My sincere sympathy to all of Joan's family. I met her at Eileen's during a visit there on business. I am so grateful to get to know her as my cousin. I enjoyed listening to her stories and journey thru her life....what a beautiful soul. May she Rest in Peace and may God give the family strength and comfort in this tremendous loss. Margie Veselka
