So sorry to hear of Joan's passing. I have such wonderful fond memories of the Staschke family. I spent a lot of time at Millie and Roy's with Merry. They were always so welcoming. Had much fun and many laughs with them all. Got to know Jim through the Maurer family when he worked at the Telephone Company. Praying that you can find strength, comfort, and peace in the days and months ahead. Thinking of you all and sending our love and hugs. Kandi "McQuillen" Dieckman

Dear cousin Jim and your family. I was so sorry to hear this news. I know you are all heartbroken to give up the love, the smile, the laughter, the serious but wise comments, the wonderful foods that she made with love in the kitchen. The years flew by so swiftly. There is never ever enough time. BUT OH THOSE MEMORIES YOU HAVE. I know for certain that you will see each other again. She will be there..with open arms and that wonderful smile. Until that time, she will be right there in your heart and mind. I am sending my love and heartfelt sympathy to you all.

Jim and Family,
We were so surprised to hear of Joan's passing. We all knew she wasn't in good health but it's still a shock. Such a sweet, kind, and thoughtful lady to all she met. Always doing good things for others when she was able. I was privileged to receive a couple of her pillowcases and kleenex carriers. That meant a lot to me. She will be dearly ❤ missed.
Love to All and God Bless
