The gifts you created for me, the cards you sent, the quilts and the embroidery, all are labors of your love.
Even though we were thousands miles apart you always took time out of your day.
A wonderful friend, Love you Joan❤️
You will be sadly missed.
Rest In Peace 🌹

I remember a lot of fun memories with grandma, most of all where the nights I would go to the bowling alley with her because my mom had to work late. It was just getting to spend time with her that ment the most, but thats how I came to love the game so much. I am thankful as I grew that she was able to watch me play the game I grew to love so much. She helped me and taught me so much over the years, helped shape me into who I am now. For that I am forever grateful. Always in my heart.

My Aunt Joan Was The Most Amazing Great Aunt One Could Have. She Was A Sweet Soul Who Loved Everyone,I Was Truly Grateful For The Opportunity To Fly To New York & See Her Back In 2000 Thanks To My Grandma For Planning That Awesome Trip It Was An Experience That Will Be With Me For The Rest Of My Life But The Worse Part Was Not Being Able To Say Goodbye But I’m Sure She Knows I Loved Her Very Much & She Will Be Missed So Much. As A Child She Made Some Crazy Concoction That Was Made From Oreos And Played A Joke On Us Kids(My Cousins) Saying It Was Dirt & The Adults Ate It Like It Was Nothing She Also Put It In A Flower Pot So It Was So Realistic After Awhile We(Children) Finally Tried It And Realized It Wasn’t Dirt & Enjoyed It. Thank You 🙏🏼 Aunt Joan For All The Memories,I Miss You So Much & I Love You Dearly. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ I Will Cherish Every Blanket,Purse & Embroidered Pictures You Made For Me!

This lady will be greatly missed by my dad her long companion of over 20years and myself. She was a kind, compassionate, and like a second mother to me, and grandmother to my kids, and great grandmother to my grandchildren. She loved to do crafts and everytime I was there she would show me what she was working on. She was always talking about her grandchildren and showing me pictures of them. I regret not seeing you Joan before you left us.

Where do I begin? Joni became my neighbor when I was a teenager, and our friendship grew by leaps and bounds and miles, over the years. From Texas to Alaska, we shared many, many good times together. She always had a bowl or two of frosting in the refrigerator saved for me. Thank you for all the memories, Joni. I'll miss you. R I P, my friend.

Enjoyed meeting & spending time with Joan & Fred! Her departure was difficult to bear witness to ~ I am choosing to believe she is safely restored on The Other Side. Can't think of her as "gone"....but simply "Gone Ahead".
An enjoyable, fun-filled, story-telling, laughter inducing, on the move Lady ~
