I'm so sorry for your loss, Joan. Just her name in the paper brought back a flood of memories of Jobs Daughters. She lived a long life and I hope it was happy and surrounded by all those grandchildren. We had Mom living with us her last 5 1/2 years. She passed 8/8/2015, at 91 yrs. She, too, had a wonderful fulfilling life.
My deepest condolences dear old friend.
