I didn’t see Joan that often but I found her to be intelligent and warm-hearted.
She exuded the spirit of goodness. My deepest sympathy to Herb and the family.

Dear Lori, Jodi and Herb —

I am so very sorry for your loss. Joan was such a beautiful woman whom I loved talking to . . . she always had a smile on her face. I remember at an 80s party where she had thrown together huge shoulders on her dress – ala Dynasty – from some old curtains she had lying around the house. It makes me smile to remember this – how creative and crafty she was. And always a good sport! She will be dearly missed . . .

Herb, our hearts go out to you, Lori and Jodi and all your family. Joan was a rare person who never lost her sense of joy. Even after 51 years of marriage, she never looked at Herb without that special sparkle in her eyes. She will be sadly missed by all who knew her. Sincere condolences for your loss from Mary and Fred.

We loved Joan’s unwavering love and support of her family. With Herb’s total support she was the main caregiver for her mom and dad for several years.
We’ve had some great times together – the four of us. We will miss her.

Dear Herb, It was truly sad to read of your terrible loss after such a Wonderful Life of 51 years. I know this must be a major blow in your life and so sudden. I have known you for quite a few years and met lovely Joan on several occasions when we were doing business together. She was a Lovely Bubbly Person. I wish you Great Strength at this trying time, hoping peace will guide you in healing in these coming months. I will say a Special Pray this Coming Xmas Day for Both Joan and Herb.
Wishing Peace on Earth as it is in her new resting place in Heaven. God Bless
