I remember Aunt Joan Sheard when she was back from service in World War II, living in an Ontario apartment with a beautiful white cat. I would have been about 4 yrs old. She always liked animals and so do I. She was a very versatile and courageous person. After her training in textiles,etc. in Toronto, she moved to Dallas to work in the garment industry. She could make her own designs, patterns, and the outfit. She she could do the gamut of sizes, and she knew all the fabrics. I sew myself and I appreciate the many abilities she had. Best of all was her personality: kind, fun, hard working, and loving. What a woman!

My Aunt Joan was always a great inspiration and example to me.
I remember her from my early childhood. She and her brother, John, would have my family visit them in the 1940s when I was 10 years old and younger. These visits to Ontario were some of my greatest experiences as a child.
In my adulthood she preceded me to the Dallas, Texas area. After my wife and I arrived, we were so glad to remember that she was here already and enjoyed her warm invitations to visit. Her daughter, Susan, was enjoying skating at the time and we marveled at her talent. Susan helped us keep in touch and brought he to visit.
She will be truly missed.
Nephew, John Best, ThD
