to Christine and Anthony my brother visited the cemetery this weekend to visit the graves of my mom and dad and sister judy and he checked, as we frequently did to see that "Uncle Tony" was resting confortably as well..only to see your there as well.I reached out to your mom several years ago after my sister died and we had a nice exchange of letters.As you probably recall your dad and mine were best friends from high school and remain so when they returned from World War II And there after.It makes me sad to know that "Aunt Joanne" has left us.. The last living tie to my parents. I hope she had a long, and she obviously did, and happy life.Jim Morrison

Joan was a dear friend. I worked with her ar State Street Market. Four of us ladies spent over 10 years together. We went out to lunch and shopped for our shops. Joan didn't have a shop,but was a trooper. She came along anyway. Had great memories together. She will be missed.

My Nana will always be an incredible woman. A caretaker, a love giver and feisty as they come. She loved (and loves) her family dearly and the amazing memories run very deep. I could not have asked for a better Nana for myself and ‘Grandy’ for my children. We as a whole family still, and even before her passing, share our favorite stories and moments. My Nana showed me love, support and understanding in all my darkest nights and lightest days. She will forever be one of the most soothing rhythm’s my heart humms to. Give Cory a hug for me. I love you Nana

I remember taking you to Jaycee's volleyball game along with my Granny. When a loose ball came at you my heart stooped. You were both OK but it added years to my life. Of course you said, it is only a ball. I remember you teaching me to play 13 and beating you, that did not make you to happy. We still play often and I always think of you. Say hello to all your siblings and give my Granny a hug from me. Love you
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
