Joan was a warm loving fun person. We shared many wonderful holidays
Together. Your house always welcomed
Just an and I each had 5 children. It was so funny that every time I was pregnant,
Joan was pregnant. When I had my fifth child, Joan said no way and laughed at me. A month later Carolyn was conceived. Guess who was laughing then.
I loved Joan, she was a fantastic women we all were lucky to have in our lives.
May you Rest In Peace!
