She was a loving and devoted wife, mother and grandmother that will be sadly missed by her family.

  • Joan came to my mind the other day. I hadn’t seen her in many years. I loved working with her at First-Knox. She was so much fun. I graduated with her daughter Connie. My prayers and sympathy go out to her family. She was such a treasure and will be greatly missed.

  • Jojo was special to us. Linda you are one of a kind. You were the “best” daughter anyone could ask for. And I know you are saying it’s because she was the best mommy. We love you, don’t be a stranger!

  • Soo sorry to learn of your mother’s passing. You have been in my heart for several days and that must have been why. Moms are tough to lose because they carry with them all the answers to questions we have ever had. You and Jim have been a blessing to both Carmon and me for years, and I pray many blessings for you two for peace and comfort in the days ahead. Love you two very much.

  • Linda,
    We are so sorry to hear about the passing of your Mother. She was a wonderful Lady. Our thoughts are with you.

  • Linda I first met Joan when I was 17 I am now 70 when I brought my wife over to meet her 47 years ago after spending 30mins with her she pulled me aside and said this one is a keeper. She has always been a mom to me and you have always been my little sister the care you gave your mom and all the time you spent with her these past serveral years shows the wonderfull love you have for your mom she will be missed.

  • Linda and family:
    We are sorry for the loss of your Mother. Our west end memories remember her as a classy lady, proud of her home and family, diligently caring for it’s outward appearance. She had a great smile, as well.
    I remember her walking to work a lot. This picture reflects her beauty and how much you are your Mother’s daughter.
    We know caring for her these last several years was done with love and compassion.
    May your memories strengthen and warm your heart as you move forward.
