I just found out about Joan's death. A good friend of mine from Ft. Wayne, Tom Campbell, told me about her passing this morning, via email.
I have very fond memories of Joan. I was born and raised in Ft. Wayne, and used to play tennis at Wildwood, before I moved to Garland, TX in '81. I remember her smiling face and her great, bubbling personality, as she greeted us at the front desk. I can still see her, as if it were yesterday. She was such a neat lady, and was always a "fashionista". She was always interested in what you were doing and what was going on in your life, which made her special in my book.
My brother, Phil Antibus, who passed in away in '99, had known Joan for a long time and had played tennis at Wildwood, also. He was very fond of her, too!
Such a nice tribute to her with all the photos of her throughout the years. She aged beautifully!
