Just heard about Joan last night and my heart is so sad today. I had the great privilege of working with Joan at 5/3 Bank. What an amazing lady who was kind and giving! Her compassion and openness was such a great thing to watch. Joan truly cared about people and always went above and beyond to aid them in their time of need. I always smiled and grew great inspiration from Joan over her eagerness to learn and be well versed on a variety of topics. I can see her vividly with a newspaper in hand, a smile and a twinkle in her eye. I won't forget conversations about news, politics and the latest discussion on NPR. I will remember fondly our rides home when my car broke down, trips to the thrift store to buy a suit, and her great friendship. It breaks my heart that we lost touch over the years and that Joan is no longer with us sharing her stories, but I am so grateful that I got know this woman who was so full of love. I will miss her and treasure all of those special memories I got to experience with her. Sending love to her family and friends who mourn with me this great loss!
