"I sat with Joan during the service and took heer to her home from Bethany Lutheran Church in Iowa Falls. She was so sweet to all she met. I hope to attend her funeral but I have a bit of car trouble and if they can fix it in time for me to get there, I will come. My deepest sympathy. Pat Thorell"
"So sorry to hear about Joanne as i remembered calling her---it has been years since i have seen any of the family but the last time i seen Joanne it was when Whitney Pralle had an open house at the place she had bought and fixed up where all you kids grew up at. it was nice to talk with her but i don't think she knew me ---you will all be in my prayers. jan (buseman) reysack"
