Aunt Joan was one of a kind, a real joy, so full of life.
She was dedicated to her church, to her it wasn't just a church it was her extended family, if some one wasn't feeling well Aunt Joan was phoning or sending a card in the mail
I remember aunt joan for her kind smile, and her laugh.
I was giving aunt Joan a ride home one day when she didn't have the car door closed all the way, we started on our way and the door opened, so I stopped and we got the door closed and I said to her Omg Aunt Joan, What would uncle Tom think if I took you home with bruises and cuts we both laughed and every time auntie was getting in my car I would say door shut, and into the laughing we would go.

I remember a bunch of the ladies from the church went on a bus trip to Niagara on the Lake.
We tested aunt Joan we where taking her to a strip club, in to the laughing she want, she said it would be ok if we didn't send her in alone.

Aunt Joan got a real joy out of teaching Sunday school,
Braydren Chilton was one of her students, she always said he was so into Jesus and the things that he did, she told me over and over that he should go into the ministry when he got older.

Aunt Joan was always asking about family, and wanted to now how everyone was doing.

We will never forget her.
