It was a joy and an honor in my life to meet and get to know Joan. She was the epitome of a lady. Joan was such a wonderful and beloved mother and grandmother and a friend to many. She will definitely be missed, but those who know her know where she is and that we will be reunited. Prayers for God’s comfort and love to Joan’s family and friends.
