Aunt Joan was such a wonderful, happy person! I'm so sad of her passing, but thankful she has alot of love in heaven to welcome her. My favorite memories are Christmas of course, and visiting her and Grandma when they visited Rough River. She and I would lay out together! She was so fun! Love to the family❤

So sorry to hear of Joan’s passing. She was a wonderful, sweet aunt. She and my Mom and I shared many trips to Rough River, lunch and dinner dates, and happy times together. We will miss her greatly. Rest In Peace , Joan, with your sisters and brothers.
