I am so sad for the loss. Joan was a good, kind, caring and loving mother, mother in law, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend. She will be missed but will remain alive in our memories for many years to come. Loving thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

Chris and family,
My prayers are with you and your family. It has been a long time since I thought about friends of my parents,Betty and Fred. You and your parents will always remind me of growing up in Holland. Many Bridge parties and your big dog "Bootsey" Your mother and father were both wonderful friends. It is sad to lose love ones that are close to us, we heal but we're never quite the same. God Bless
Sincerely,

Chris and family,
My prayers are with you and your family. I have not been back East for a long time and I came back for my Aunt Ruth's memorial in Oct. Richard's (Noe) wife Mary told me your Mother lived a few miles away from them. I'm sorry now I wasn't able to visit her. You and your parents will always be a part of my growing up in Holland. How could I forget all those Bridge parties and that big dog "Bootsey" of yours. Your parents were Betty and Fred's best friends. At 94 your Mother had a full life and hopefully she is in a better place....mybe they are all playing Bridge again! It is sad when we lose loved ones close to us, even though we heal we are never quite the same. God Bless
Sincerely,
Anne M Lepre (Messick)

Chris and family,
It has been a long time since I have been back east, but I recently came back for my Aunt Ruth's memorial and Richard's wife Mary told me your Mother lived a few miles away. I wasn't able to go and see her and I'm sorry now I didn't have the time. You and your parents will always be in my memory, growing up in Holland. All those Bridge parties and "Bootsey" that springer spaniel. My prayers are with your family and be comforted that your Mother at 94 had a wonderful life and was a great friend to my parents Betty and Fred. I hope she is in a better Place.
Sincerely,
Anne M Lepre (Messick)
