Not sure what to say?

Joan never seemed to lose her sense of mission, nor her desire to contribute knowledge to any group she was a part of. I know I am lucky to have known her. My condolences to all who love her.

Sending love and condolences!! What a spirited, generous and loving woman. She will be missed!!!!

What can I say? I distinctly remember the very first Sunday that Joan came to UUCW. I greeted her at the door. I can remember saying that every service is different, so do not judge based on just one service.

I would wish to emulate how she always made whoever she interacted with feel interesting, cared for, and loved.

joan was an inspiration and I enjoyed engaging in conversation with her

To Joans family and friends,
My deepest sympathies to you on the passing of Joan. She was a remarkable woman who lived a life of purpose to encourage others, help solve problems, and make this place a better world in which to live.

May your happy memories help to sustain you, especially when you...

Joan's obituary took my breath away; I knew she was someone who got involved in causes that she cared deeply about, but I had no idea the length and breadth of this.
Joan was a fascinating woman, who always brought an interesting, thoughtful perspective to things.
I will miss her very much.
