    I regret not being with everyone to recognize and celebrate the life of Aunty Joan. Aunty Joan was a central part of our growing up, where our trips to visit her in Melbourne were always an adventure and a highlight as young kids. Aunty Joan and Uncle Frank were always supportive of my sports endeavors through to rubbing Goanna Oil onto my legs to be sure they were ready to compete or attending a football match. Aunty Joan looked after Maggie for me, when I went to the USA, back in 2000, and she loved Maggie dearly. I have very fond memories of Aunty Joan visiting in Chicago, with my mum. We had a traditional US Thanksgiving with friends and traveled to Niagara Falls and Canada. Perhaps this inspired “the sisters” to then visit New Zealand and I can still the see the smiles as they took that flight on another adventure. Aunty Joan was part of all our lives in so many ways and for so many years. She will be greatly missed.

    Joan was a lovely gentle Lady. We will always cherish the good times we spent together. The fishing trips, BBQ’s and the walks along the river bank. The Kids always loved going to Auntie Joan’s and Uncle Franks.
    Sleep peacefully now, you and Frank are together once again.
    Sympathy to Dorothy and Families.
