My sympathies to the family for the loss of a lovely lady whom we had the pleasure to work with at Talisman in JV accounting. She shared the love of her cat and family stories with us and made the time we had memorable and fun. You will be missed greatly.

I am so very sorry to hear about Joan’s passing and offer my condolences to all family members. I know you are a very close family. I had many long discussions and laughs with Joan at work and for a while by phone after her retirement and even now I smile at those great Cat stories she used to tell. It was truly a pleasure knowing and working with Joan. She will be missed very much!
