I still remember as a little girl ,Joan was pregnant with her first child. She came to her moms for lunch and Carol and I helped her get her shoes on ! She also was my Sponsor for confirmation and didn’t blink an eye when I choose “Peter” as my confirmation name. Alway sweet, always a smile, “Hi,Conchhhhettaah”!”

People touch your life in all special ways and leave marks that always touch your heart when you hear something or see something or someone special. Joan touched our lives the moment we met her, her kindness was overwhelming to us and she immediately made us feel like family. To have our daughter be part of this amazing family we were blessed by the family Dom and Joan created through their love for one another. Joan’s memories will forever be in our heart and we will miss her so much.
