Joan was a dear friend and neighbor of mine when she lived in the Hess Lake/Newaygo area. Our friendship continued after she moved back to Grand Rapids. I will miss you forever Joan. Love you. Marilyn Knowles

My Aunt Joan was so beautiful inside and out. She was my favorite Aunt on the Bennett side and I can remember as a child going and playing with my cousins (Michelle) (Bobby) (Paul) and she always gave me candy and loved me so much from childhood to my adult life. She was smart, beautiful, kind, loyal, loving, most catering woman amongst so many other things. I love and miss her and I can remember her arms around me holding me tight. May you now you are deeply loved and until we meet again.

My thoughts and prayers are with you all. Joan was a kind and loving woman I have many good memories from our fire department years going out to dinner and just talking on the phone to each other. I loved your Mom and she will be missed. My love to you all Helen Wagner
