Condolence From: Lucy H
Condolence: To the Rivera family
I leave my deepest condolences. Its never easy to experience the absence of a loved one. Im sure Joan impacted many people in positive ways and this grants her one of the many accomplishments a person aspires. That is having a good name.The bible mentions in (Eclesiastes 7:1) “A good name is better than good oil” Surely Joan earned a good name before those who surrounded her. Im sure she will be greatly missed. I hope at this moment the Rivera family can take comfort in the words found at ( John 5:28,29).

Condolence: So sorry for your loss Roxi. Joan I met you when I was knee high to a grass hopper. You have been in my life since. Still have the fur coat you sent me all those years ago. You will be missed. Always had a positive word to say no matter how bad the situation was. Prayers to your family. Denise Harnish

Condolence: Joanie. I was a young woman barely out of college when I met you. I remember coming to interview at Steinberg-Kass and being intimated by your big board with all the plugs! I didn't know anyones' hands could move so fast! You were warm and welcoming...and wished me luck. Luck was surely on my side the day I met you. Over the years you continued to be my friend, watching me get promoted, married, have children and eventually leave to raise my family. Not a month went by that you didn't call to check on me for over 20 years. It then became my turn to check on you when you retired. There wasn't a voice you didn't recognize...a name you forgot. You always prayed that I was healthy and safe...I will pray that you are at peace. You will be missed. Theresa xoxo

Condolence: Joanie’s smiling face was the first face I saw every morning at Donegar. She would make all your problems disappear. Having a bad day, she would make you laugh. Rest In Peace, I’ll miss chatting with you.
