    On behalf of our family, we extend our heartfelt condolences to Joanne’s family.
    Joanne not only was our realtor many years ago, (to whom we continue to appreciate her tremendous help in finding the perfect home for our family), but she was also a good friend and classmate with my mother, Ada (Griffin) Slavik. I know how much my mother appreciated Joanne’s friendship.
    We were saddened to hear of your loss. May God’s love and peace comfort you.
