    Our sympathy to the family in Joan’s death. We enjoyed our friendship through Mount Michael. Traveled with Joan to Rome and had such a memorable time with Fr. Mario Gramlich.
    May she rest in peace. Our prayers. The Sojkas

    For a period of time in my life, Joan was a second Mom to me.
    I have such fond memories of my times with her. I will always hold her close to my heart. My deepest sympathy to her family.
    She was a great lady!
