  1. To all of Joan’s family,
    I was one of Joan’s classmates in the LaMarque Schools, I think maybe all 12 years, anyway many years. We were in the band together and had great fun on all the band trips, New Orleans and train trips. Joan was one of a kind, a fun loving person who valued friendships and liked to have a good time. She did a great job of keeping all of our class together and helped plan many get togethers and activities. She also handled our class financial account, sending birthday cards and flowers. Going to miss old Joan. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all the family.
