Im so sorry for your loss of Aunt Joan, she was such a force a fighter and loved so many.

Aunt Joan was so much more than an average Aunt, she was special. The memories you all created with her were immeasurable.

She was a dear and loving friend to many, especially my Mom, Doris and so many others.

I will miss our visits by phone and in-person.

We were so blessed.

With all our love,
Vince and Rebecca ❤

I will miss you Joan. I remember the times you would bring Donna, Joanne , and Vincent to Texas to visit. You were a real trooper and go to theme parks and ride roller coasters. Then once you got back home, your back would always bother you. Also, you were pretty bossy but we overlooked that. Tell Mom I said hello. Love Bill Melissa Jenny and John Sanders
