Dear Family and friends. I've had the pleasure of chatting and visiting, and being with Aunt Joene over the years thru Edward. I charish the time we spent at the July 4th get togethers. Aunt Joene was a wise and wonderful person. She always made me feel so welcome. She will be greatly missed and my thoughts and prayers go out to each and everyone of you.

I had the pleasure of enjoying Mrs. Balf's hospitality over the 2009 Fourth of July weekend. She made me feel so welcomed in her home. Her graciousness will be missed. My prayers and thoughts go out to her family and friends.
We all know that there will never be another Aunt Joene. She was one and an only! She has definately left a foot print on our hearts and she will be missed so very much! I am so greatful I got to spend one last time with her the last of April. Who would have know it would be the last. It was so wonderful to have that shared time with her and Ralph and my family. She is now with the angels and all of her loved ones that have gone before her, so I am sure they are having another family reunion on the other side. Ralph~Donna~Gloria~Tim~ I am so sorry and more so that I can't be there with you. Know that all of our love will be with each of you during this time. Love to you all, Ava Lynne, Don, Bonnie, Brad, Daniel, Brendon, and Braydyn Berry "Love you all"
We're saddened by the loss of such a dynamic and wonderful lady. Joene's influence is broader than we all can ever appreciate. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. We're always here for you.
