I shared so many good times and good talks with Joanne - often at her home - in the late 1970's - early 1980's when I lived in Southern Maine, during some of the Maine Rowdies heydays, when our children were young - long before our grandmother days! I remember a warm, loving friend, with a huge, kind heart and wry sense of humor; a slim, lovely, strong woman who laughed often and was such a gracious hostess. Sadly and regrettably, I moved away and lost touch with this wonderful, amazing Woman, Mother, Grandmother, Businesswoman, Friend. She will always be in my heart - how blessed we all are to have had her in our lives - a special woman who gave so much of her marvelous spirit to so many. I send my warmest thoughts and condolences to her children, grandchildren and rest of family.
