Lillian and I are snowbirds but get involved in First Presbyterian Church in Z’hills, FL. Thats how we got to know Joan. Always a pleasant lady doing the most/best that she could for all. We will miss her presence At FP when we return to Z’hills this Jan and for now we will hold you in our thoughts and prayers.
May God’s blessings cover you in the days ahead as you adjust to changes in your lives.
Blessings, Gail Miner(Nova Scotia, Canada and

I posted a note on line but decided to see if the funeral home had something and discovered this. My thoughts and prayers are with the entire family. Joan was missed as soon as she left Zephyrhills. All who knew her here felt empty. This emptiness is deeper now but I am sure we all know she is with her “hubby” now and feeling great. We just have to learn to accept her being gone but she will never be forgotten. All of you take care and we are glad that we had a chance to know her!
