A very sad loss of a wonderful lady, never one to mix her words, you would get the total honest straight up truth from Joan! She was such a strong independent lady and extremely spirited but with a heart of gold! Our love and condolences go out to Julie, Daniel and families. RIP Joan, you will be greatly missed! Nicola & Chris xxx

I worked with Joan for 9 years and after a very short time realised she was such a character. We often met for coffee and would put the world to rights , having a good laugh along the way. Joan always talked about her family, who she loved dearly, especially Ava, the apple of her eye. I will miss Joan greatly. To all Joans family and friends, I am so sorry for your loss.
