My son, Raymond Horn had you for a teacher at Stackpole. Raymond really loved how you would shake his hand everyday at the end of school. I told him of your passing and he said, " Miss Bellet was a great person". We always saw you driving down our Street and you would always wave to us. May you rest in peace. You will be missed.
In 1971, shortly after she received a double kidney transplant ,Joan joined the staff of Stackpole Elementary School. In spite of her health she functioned with remarkable energy for as long as I was there and after my retirement. She earned admiration and respect from all who knew her for her attitude of acceptance and resolve. She wore a smile every day. She loved people and accepted them as they were and often helped those who asked. She stated often that, "It is what it is and as long as I'm up and moving, everything is good." Joan' life was an inspiration to us all and I will miss her.
Jerry Hodge, Stackpole School Principal 1963-1982
There is only one thing that lessens our grief at Joanie's passing: to know she has no pain or heartache. She has unbelievable joys in the presence of her dear Father. We will miss her all the time, but our lives are richer for having known her and been her friend. Clare & Bill
JOAN, I worked with you for many years at Stackpole School, and you taught my children there. You were a terrific teacher, a warm and loving person,. Rest in peace. Eileen (Quinn) Owens, Southampton, Pa.
I just heard today 2/28 that Joan went home to be with the LORD. I was just talking with her on the phone maybe 2 weeks ago? I'm saddened that she left us so suddenly but know she is in Heaven enjoying her Savior, Jesus Christ! We were in Hope Keepers together and even with her disabilities, she was a servant who loved to serve others!!"Love you Joan, we will see you when we all get to Heaven!" Jan Vogel-Manz
