Dear Brenda, Barbara, Susan and family,
Auntie Joan was a person you can look up to as she was wise women. She was a good friend she was so loveable. She was a lady who was very fashionable and always had that smile!
We were all so blessed to have her in our life. She will be well missed by all that knew her. Auntie Joan we are so thankful for all the beautiful memories we have of you and uncle Danny.

My condolences to Joan’s loved ones. I would like to say some words that I wish she could hear. I attended Shiloh during the 40’s and 50’s. All the Christmas, Easter, and Mother’s Day recitation and singing we memorized are fond memories because my teachers at Sunday school were Joan , Joyce and Lenore. I thank her for the warm and loving feelings I still feel concerning those times. Just turned 80 yrs. I am Louise Hicks-Skog-Lachapelle

What a beautiful person Joan was. She was indeed warm and loving, always greeted one with a radiant beautiful smile. May she rest safely in the arms of Jesus.
