My thoughts and prayers go out to Noman as he begins a new path in his life. Lee Ann in losing a mother that was a best friend and companion. Eric in losing a mother that was always there for him and his children in all of life's moments. Joan was always there to help in church activities and in her faithfulness to God and family. She will be missed by all of us who lived her.

Dear Norman & Family So sorry for your loss & know Joan will be missed greatly. I remember when you all married and when your children were born. Seems like such a long time but I remember Joan over the years as being happy & it was always fun to be around her. She was indeed a delights to be with.

I’m so sorry for the loss of Mama Joan! She was like a second mom to me and I love her very much. Thank you all for sharing her with me! I was truly BLESSED to have her in my life! Looking forward to the day that we see each other again! Love, Rita Proverbs 31: 28-31 NIV 28. Her children arise and call her blessed;
    her husband also, and he praises her: 29. “Many women do noble things,
    but you surpass them all.” 30. Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting;
    but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised. 31. Honor her for all that her hands have done,
    and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.
