A friend and co-worker, one of the "lunch bunch" and after retirement we all became the "Biddy Committee". Her laugh was infectious. She would do anything she could to help anyone. Rest in peace, Joan. You will be missed. Thoughts and prayers for her family whom she loved dearly.

Joan was my dear friend for over four decades. I've always said she was my sister by another Mother. She and I had many wonderful times together. We both enjoyed books and soap operas. She put together more jigsaw puzzles than anyone I've ever known. She loved her Boston Terrier, Sadie. I am certainly going to miss my friend. Hope they have puzzles in Heaven .
