We will very much miss a wonderfully-sweet lady with such a magnetic smile. It was a pleasure to know Joan for way too short a time at the American Legion. She has so many friends that she didn't even really know, but they knew her because of her sweet personally and genuine personality. God Bless You, Joan!
Pam Brittain- My sincere thoughts are with you and your family during this difficult time.
