I will never forget Joan. She was a devoted wife and mother, and Catholic. I’ll never forget Jack either! Joan taught me so much in the few months I lived with your family, before Judy and Jan came along. She was mom supreme, juggled so much with a loving smile.
Thank you Joan so much.

I grew up in the same neighborhood as the McTigue's and played all the time with Mike and the rest of the kids and went camping with the family. Joan influenced me significantly, helped me learn right from wrong, and showed me how loving a family can be. I respected her immensely and truly sympathize with the whole McTigue clan.

What a lovely photo and timeless as I remember her. I am so grieved another great woman friend mother wife Catholic has left my younger world of wonderful family gatherings, meals, laughter and prayer. These pandemic restrictions make it even harder to give her the celebration she deserves as she is welcomed into the waiting arms of heaven. Love and prayers to all.

Joanie was, hands down, the best mother-in-law anyone could ever ask for!
