So sorry to hear of your loss of your Mom.
I have many memories of her when she was our neighbour on Victoria St.
I will always remember her great sense of humor and laugh.
I only hope Joan doesn't take all her milk money in their card games in heaven.

Kim, Brenda, Bobby and Jeff,

I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your mother. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

Joanne was a wonderful person. She never missed an opportunity to show her pride in you kids and all of your families. She will be missed by everyone who knew her.

I remember our families spending so much time together when we were all younger and the ring of your mom's laughter will never leave me. No doubt, my mom was waiting for her with golf clubs in hand - rushing to catch up with the guys.
