Denny and boys, we are so sorry to hear about Joan, She was such a special loving wife and mom. We will always keep those special memories of her in our hearts, especially the one when she helped us when our basement flooded. She fixed dinner and to test if the spaghetti was done, she threw one on the fridge! If it stuck, it was done. SHe was a special gift to so many. Our love to all of you.

So sad to hear of Joan’s passing, she was one of my first managers at IRS, she really worked with working mothers to alter their schedules, to continue working and be home for their children. She was a strong believer in family first, I was very fortunate to have her as my manager. She was very well respected and everyone loved her. She also had a great sense of humor and really supported her employees.

My deepest condolences to the Halfhill family. I worked with Joan for many years. We had the same job titles but I was in Andover and she in Cincinnati. Joan was the kindest, thoughtful, and most genuine lady I ever had the pleasure to work with. When I visited the Service Center she would take me to a favorite local restaurant or out to tour the sites. She was not just a co worker; she was a friend. And how she loved her family. Her face lit up when she told me about her grandchildren. May her memory be a blessing.
