  2. Joan and I shared so many years working together at St. Paul’s and NATD and as friends. She was a part of most the key moments in my life in Houston and those of my family sharing our most exciting special moments in the Space Program.

    One of her many skills was her excellent attention to detail which made much of what I was involved in so much better. I am grateful that she was a part of my life over my years in Houston.

    Bo and I send our deepest sympathy to all of her family whom she loved so much and of whom she was so proud.

    Dianne and Bo Bobko
