I met Joan shortly after marrying Orv Anderson and moving to Kent. She was such a help to me in those early days and I so admired her and her ability to run that family ship! She loved her brood and it was so obvious that her life revolved around their happiness. She was a thoughtful and loving person and will be missed.
