    Owen, I am so sorry to hear of your mother’s death. I am a Kappa sister and I have been planning Lunch Bunch for many years. Joan was a faithful attendee, as you know, and a wonderful addition to the gathering, bringing cute napkins and seasonal candy for all. I was so fond of her. She will be missed by many.

    My condolences to you, Owen.

    Cheryl and I were so sorry to hear that Joan passed away. We always had such nice conversation when she came into our store(Segaloff’s Jewelers in Needham). She was such a lovely person. She will be missed by all. May you always cherish her memory.

    Owen, we at First Parish are so sorry that Joan has passed away. She was a faithful, active participant in our parish life, always interested in what was going on and willing to help in any way that she could. She had a wonderfully positive outlook on life, and I will miss her occasional visits to the church office and her willingness to help. She was a lovely lady.

    We were neighbors on GreenHill Road. Your mother was a wonderful neighbor and a great source of information on gardens and activities for children. She is part of my memory of a happy time.
