would like to say thank you to
all of you who helped in any
way during this most difficult
time of sadness.
Thank you to VanHoe
Funeral Home, St. Patrick’s
Church, the choir, the organist,
St. Anne’s Circle and all the
people who brought food and
served the wonderful funeral
luncheon, and for the masses to
be said. Thanks to all those
who provided support and
prayers, every one who came
to the visitation and funeral,
those who sent food, cards,
flowers, plants and memorials.
A special thank you to
Genesis Hospice Group and to
Fr. Steven Bird of St. Patrick’s
Church in Colona for their
loving care and support.
Joan was a special wife,
mother, grandmother, greatgrandmother
and friend who
will be truly missed.

What if the brilliant,
twinkling stars
that bring the dark night sky
to life
are windows looking out
of heaven?
And at the very moment
when we’re wishing on
those stars,
hoping that the loved ones
we have lost are happy,
safe and free…
maybe they are looking at those same stars
from the other side,
making the same wish for us…
sending us all their love.
Sadly Missed By
Friends & Family

It’s been 13 years Dad, and 6
years Mom, since you joined
our heavenly family. You are
still missed dearly.
Your Family


12/24/43 — 5/13/13

If tears could build a stairway
and memories a lane
We would walk
right up to heaven
and bring you home again.
We miss you.
Bonnie & Jeannie
