I worked with Joan in the 90's when she was Endoscopy, and I was at the other end in Same Day Surgery. She was an excellent Nurse and I always loved her sense of humor. When she told us the story of getting left behind during your parent's trip to Italy I laughed until I cried: She had that great dry comic delivery. I am so sorry for your loss.

Thanks to my Aunt Joan I have always worn my seatbelt and to this day I check my posture at the dinner table, She became a second mom to me after I lost mine, she was loud and opinionated at times, you always knew where you stood with her and I wouldn’t have wanted her any other way.
She mentored my wife Becky through nursing school and was a loving caring soul, my granddaughter met her once and when she heard she passed she said “ No not Aunt Joan” she made an impression on everyone she met and I will miss her for the rest of my life.
