I was in a book club with Joan. She was amazing and such an avid reader. I really enjoyed getting to know her. She always had interesting comments about the books and life in general

I've know Joan for over 20 years. She has been coming to the public library where I work and do a book group since 1999. I ALWAYS loved seeing and talking to her and we always laughed together. I will miss her greatly.
