Joanne was a special AUNT. I have many wonderful memories of great times shared, especially as a child during the summers at Bear Brook. I will miss her smile and laugh. I know it’s been hard for her, but she is now with uncle Armand and can Rest In Peace.

As a friend of the family, I remember Joanne as a warm, welcoming presence throughout the years at many Dugas family events. I was always greeted with a warm hug and kiss on the cheek, and she always demonstrated a sincere interest in my well being. She genuinely succeeded in helping me to feel like a part of the family and I am grateful for that. The reassuring sense of belonging that she encouraged will always be with me. My sincere condolences to her family on their loss.
