I am saddened by Joan’s death. She brought a loving smile and caring words to everyone she met among the Sisters and Associates of St. Francis, Oldenburg. I will miss her. As will so many others. Her blessing remains.

Joan's deep brown eyes never missed a person in need of help. Joan will sleep peacefully now knowing she helped everyone she could. It is our turn to comfort each other concerning the great loss of an angel on earth.
