    We were sorry to hear of Joan's death.  We will remember Joan and Gene for the long time that we knew them.  Gene was our colleague at CCC, and Joan was part of the extended CCC family. May God comfort you in your loss.

    I was sorry to hear of Joan’s passing.  We worked together in the OB department and had a great rapport.  I’ll always remember her wit and sarcastic humor. After her retirement, whenever we met, it was always a delight to talk to her.  She’ll be missed.
