    Joan was a really sweet and wonderful lady. We enjoyed the times she spent at MAC with us and the trips she enjoyed going on. I will remember her sweet smile and quick wit. She will be missed by us all.

    Aunt Joan was one of the sweetest, kindest ladies I’ve ever known. She always had a smile on her face and liked to make you laugh. She was like a Mom to me and I will forever love her and she will always remain in my heart. I was blessed to be able to spend quality time with her and Uncle Bill over the years and will always treasure those precious memories of the good times we had together. She will be missed immeasurably.
