    To Bill and family
    Our sincere condolences.We are saddened to hear of Joan’s demise.She was taken from you all too soon.
    Our favourite memory of Joan is the time she dressed up for an Enersul’s Social Club Halloween Party; she along with Shannon and Sue kept us all guessing as to their real identity! Then Joan coughed! We recognized that throaty cough and all bets were off!!Fun times!
    Our apologies for not being able to attend todays service but you are in our thoughts and prayers.
