I worked with Joanie at Westinghouse in Sharon Pa around 1965 and she then left to become a nurse. We were very good friends and so sorry to hear of her passing. Thank you so much for sharing that news.

Working with you at Campus hemodialysis is such a happy memory. You were a kind, intelligent, funny voice of reason in a sometimes chaotic atmosphere.
