I worked with Joan for 24 years at Dr. Scherschel's office. I used to go to her house and see her Christmas decorations each year and have lunch with her at this time. Her house was always spotless and I think we could have eaten off the floor and not gotten any germs. I did loose track of where she was the last years. I have moved to Florida.
I extend my sympathy to the nieces and remaining family
Love to all,
