What a miss she will be. She was a true friend. Won’t have as many £2 coins now she’s not saving them for me. Her hats always matched the rest of her outfits. Goodbye Joan.

A sad day for all who knew Joan as she'll be so missed by so many. It's also a wonderful day for Joan who is finally in the presence of her Lord and Saviour who she has served so faithfully. I imagine her playing the most amazing organ for the angels to sing to, in her element, wearing a fabulous hat. Enjoy your forever Joan xx

  • Thank you so much for the lovely tribute to my Mam, she was one of a kind, always thinking of others and always faithful to her Lord and Saviour. She had such an impact on so many people and to us as a family. We will miss her but she’s with her Lord and out of her suffering. She loved her hats too and to many she was the hat lady x
