Joan was a great friend to the Campbell Family for 35+ years. She was always helpful in looking out for Warren and Dorothy who lived across the street. She and Gary have been the greatest neighbors and always extending help when needed. Joan was extremely supportive and always interested in the Campbell children and how they were doing throughout their lives. Joan was a brilliant woman and always had a smile on her face. We were very lucky to have had some of her brilliance and kindness shine on us. We love you Joan!

God Speed Joan,

Joan was such a kind soul and always looked out for all for Campbell kids as well as our families. She always made it a point to ask how I was doing and make sure I was headed in the right direction. She was so proud or me when I graduated law school that she gave me her Supreme Court gavel with the following words. It still sits in my office. You will be dearly missed.
