      I am so very sorry to hear of your great loss. Joan and Pat took care of my Mother together and Joan was truly a sweetheart to Mom. She never showed up at 937 Jay St. without a treat like fresh strawberries or cake or something she had made for us. She loved to give presents and do kind things for people. I always felt she was one of the most thoughtful people I had ever met because she treated Mom so well. She had a very very big heart.
      My deepest sympathies to Joan’s family and friends. Kathy Calderwood

    Aunt Joan was one of the most generous women I have ever known. While I recall once in a lifetime memories of frog legs in the kitchen sink, I also remember her for coming by with presents from “Santa” and yummy peanut butter fudge; I’ve never tasted better. I remember the smell of cigarettes and her beautician’s salon…my first perm. She was tough as nails on the outside, but a gem underneath. Love you Aunt Joan and glad to know you’re in a better place!

    So much I could say, but I love you sis and will always miss you. I will always remember the happier times and Tuesdays with Martha on our snowmobiles.

    Dianne and Deeanne,
    I am so sorry for your loss. Joanie was a big part of my memories of Mom’s family. She and Mom would reminisce and laugh for hours on our front porch. She was a special gal who had that LeBeau trait of a love for life.
    She will be missed.
    Sorry I was unable to make the funeral but please know you’re all in our prayers.
