She was deeply loved. I worked with Joan at Town and Country when I first movedto Streator. She made me feel very welcome. How strange it was that I ended up livingacross the street from her. One thing about her is that she always found good in everyone she met. I will truly miss her. May God Bless her Family.

We are deeply saddened, Debbie and your Family for the loss of such a beautiful, loving, and caring person.
We all called her "mama Joan" because she seem like our "Mama". I will deeply miss hearing all her wonderful stories and her awesome love for God. Prayers to you all! May Mama Joan rest in God's arms.
