Aunt Joan was a wonderful woman. She told me so many stories growing up and also taught me many prayers and how to do my Rosaries. She was a very strong woman and a great hearted one. She loved kids and she loved her family very dear. Deepest condolences to all the family.

So sorry for your loss. I can remember when she was pregnant for Raymond and my sister Nancy was pregnant for Lanny she would come over and we would play Monopoly all day. Then I can also remember when her and I stole strawberries from Tony Berg, he caught us. Her and I ran through the field and hid in the pigpen hut.

Leave your Condolence
