We will miss Joan's happy face, her caring nature and enthusiasm for all things, especially her bartering over the Christmas cracker contents. Love to Ross and all the family from the NZ in laws who loved her dearly. Fond memories from Sally, Don, Thomas and Simon. Kia Kaha (stay strong)

Hi Folks, We were very sorry to hear of Joan's passing as we were unaware that she was unwell. We met Joan only once many years ago in Bill and Margarets home when my late mum was visiting. She was a very fine lady and as you say she will be sorely missed,especially by Ross who has lost a life partner. Our sincere condolences to you all on this very sad occasion

Our condolences to all the family. Aunty Joan was always so full of energy and had a positive outlook on life that was infectious. Although we only met up when she and Uncle Ross were in NZ, I'll always have such great memories of her visits and her great welcoming smile.

Love and best wishes—Kathryn, Ian & Hannah

My love to all the family but especially Ross, Ian, Brett , Jeramey and Cassandra. Joan was a lovely Mum in law and her and Ross really made me welcome in their family. We have many, very happy memories of their visits with us and our home has a real feel of Joan as there are a lot of reminders of her especially helping me at Christmas, a time she loved preparing for, she even went on strike helping put decorations on the tree, she said I was too bossy and had too many rules, only someone you feel totally comfortable with could say that. I will miss the energy that was Joan, it touched a lot of people. Ross, I truly regret not being able to be with you now, all my love Mandy

Mum died in her sleep without any pain or distress. She had become quite frail over the last year. We will miss her terribly.

We hope to have a memorial for her life later in the summer and will contact all family and friends when that is decided.
