Dear Kathleen & Dan,

Our sincere sympathies to you both and your family at this time of sorrow. You will be in our thoughts and prayers.

She took some of us to our first Buffalo Bills and Sabres games, nurturing our love for Buffalo sports teams. Memories that will last a life time. I wish she could have made it to Ireland like we talked about. A life cut too short. Thank you Aunt Joan for being so good to all of us.

We would like to express our deepest condolences to Joan's entire family and all of her many friends who are like extended family members. She enriched our lives in so many wonderful ways and was a true witness to Christ and His Gospel. May we honor her by following her example.

So many amazing memories from my childhood include Aunt Joan. My children loved her and were just beginning to make memories with her. She will be missed, her memory will live on forever. This world was a better place with you in it! I love you Aunt Joan!

Joan will be missed by everyone that knew her. My deepest sympathy to her family and friends at this most difficult time. God Bless.

My deepest sympathies to Joan's family. I had the pleasure of knowing Joan my entire life as she was a wonderful friend to my mother and our whole family. I will always have fond memories of a sweet person with a heart of gold!

God Bless

Prayers for Joan and her family...may Saint Dominic bless all of you. She always had a warm smile at every chapter meeting for us.

Joan was a wonderful friend. We all knew God was first in her life. Will miss all the good times. Condolences to her family. She will never be forgotten. It's good to know we'll have someone in heaven to intercede for us

My sympathy to all the family - I knew Joan from attending St. Anthony's Latin Mass for years, and she was a faithful member, Pro-Life Warrior, choir member, and dedicated to serving others. Also: friend to all of us. Requiestcat in pace - Eternal rest! Everlasting memory!
