My prayers, love and condolences to all the family. It was an honor to be Joan’s pastor for a number of years. She was a truly dedicated follower of Christ and as classy a woman as they come. What a blessing it is that our paths crossed.

Joan was a caring and loving lady. I do mean LADY. She was caring, loving and never would do anything to harm anyone. She loved her Lord.

To all the family, my heart breaks for everyone. Loosing such a sweet and caring, and genuine person will leave a hole in your lives for sure. But we have the hope and assurance of knowing that being absent from the body is being present with the Lord, if we are believers in Christ Jesus. I know this precious woman of God is rejoicing in the heavenly's with all the saints gone before her. No more pain, no more sorrow, and bless her heart, she beat me there. Much LOVE to Jordan who adored her, Heather, and everyone who so lovingly cared for her over the years. Romans 8:38 & 39
Love, Brad & Sylvia Campbell
