What a wonderful mentor Joan was to me when I was an intern at Forest Elementary over 30 years ago. Her example helped me as I mentored new teachers.
Some of the happiest days of my life were spent in the home of your parents and Sister Joan. In my mind her family was an archetype of perfection, I was very sad to hear from a mutual friend of the loss of Joan. We are all greatly blessed to have known her.
I was shocked to see Joan's obituary in this mornings paper. She and I were real good friends years ago when I was single. I spent many hours in her home. She was always so gracious. She had the happiest personality. I really missed our old gang when I got married and moved away.
My prayers are with your family at this time.
Our family is very thankful for the love and care you showed your students through your teaching.
We will be forever grateful to you, Dear Miss Amott.

Dear Jeanne and David, Love to you and your family. My sister Marian and I learned about Joan being ill when we visited Jeanne at Truman and Marilyn's homecoming from New York at the open house. We didn't expect her to die this soon but knew she was extremely ill. I knew her as well as Jeanne at the U years ago, but I also knew Joan as a teacher for many years during my teaching days as well. My condolences go to you and your family as well as those of my sister Marian. I am glad that David sent me your family group sheet information for the Fox genealogy. Please send me an update of any new additions to your family. I hope to come to Wasatch Lawn on Friday to see you. I would like to attend the funeral Saturday as well but I am not sure I will be able to do so as yet. Love, Kathryn MacKay Jones
