What a great supporter and influence to your successful nursery career and many slivers of her influence to the rest of us. Paula and I enjoyed knowing her over the brief interactions we had over many decades. She will be kept in fond memories. Some people leave a quiet but distinct positive mark on others. Time for final resting without regret.

The picture of Joanne brought back so many happy memories of time spent together. One of our remembrances of her was how delighted she was when she found out you were pregnant, Julie. She so wanted to be a “grandmother”. And was she a great one! Alexis was her pride and joy. We’re so sorry we can’t be with you during this difficult time.
