Dear Donna, Victoria, Matthew, and All,
We were saddened to hear of JoAnnโ€™s passing. She was a kind and loving person, and I know that she will be missed. Though we did not know her well, we loved her. She was very kind to us, and she loved our LORD.

The LORD bless you, and [l]keep you;
The LORD cause His face to shine on you,
And be gracious to you;
The LORD lift up His face to you,
And give you peace.โ€™
Numbers 6:24-26 (NASB)

With Prayer, Love and Tears,
Michael and Victoria Chapman
And sons: Timothy and Josiah

Joann was a sweet neighbor of my mother, Martha Murphy, at Lynnhaven Cove for several years. Joann was always kind and helpful whenever my mother needed anything. I enjoyed talking with her during my visits to Lynnhaven Cove. She will truly be missed.

I don't have a memory to share but I can tell all she raised a beautiful man of God named Buck (Matthew). I go to church with Buck and he is an inspiration to all by showing his devoted faith and love in our Heavenly Father. I am a Christian woman and mother of a son. It is every mother's goal and dream to have a child who knows, loves and serves the Lord. Please be very proud Mrs. Chapman of your good works and dedication in raising your children as a Christian mother.

I was Joannโ€™s Sunday School teacher at Plaza Baptist for many years. We spent many good times together especially talking about flowers. Before she moved to Chesapeake she gave me quite a few amaryllis which blooms so beautifully. I will truly miss her. May God give all His Peace and Comfort during this sad time. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™.
