Joan, a long time friend,
died before before we were prepared …
we thought she’d be with us 2 decades more..
but on God’s time on April 13, 2018 at age 78.
Her Celebration of Life was May 5, 2018.
A remarkable woman of faith she humbly demonstrated
and never flaunted. Just lived as she thought
as a follower of Jesus, she should.
Loving 3/4/5 year olds she ran Sunshine Pre-School
and then at the YMCA day care.
A life time Girl Scout from age 6.
Her husband adored her to the end.
A wonderful mother, grand-mother, and great-grandmother
to a family of 15 … her legacy will live on thru them
and the multitudes of friends that will follow her teachings
as a church school teacher, and an Episcopal Deacon for 15 years.
Thru the next weeks, I will share memories of Joan,
Ralph, her husband, her children, and grands…
thru my memories being blessed to have known her since
the early 1970’s.
Rest in Peace, Dear Joan.
No longer in pain,
reunited with loved ones
gone before you.
Amen ! Hallelujah !
