"SCANLAN, Joan Merle" Comments

Virginia, Nigel, Tracey, Leonie & Alisonsays:

Very sad to hear the news on Joan. We have known her through our friendship with Fran and although some of us have not met this gorgeous lady she has remained very much part of our lives. We have all benefitted from her beautiful painting or embroidery. With love to all Joan’s family and friends – she will be missed but she also left a lovely legacy for everyone to enjoy.

Tom Codd and Family Irelandsays:

Deepest Sympathy to Fran, Margaret, Helen, Carmel and Damian on the passing of your lovely mother Joan st this sad and difficult time for all
She has left you memories of a loving caring mother. At rest now, together again with your father Brian.
I will ” Light A Penny Candle” thinking of you all here and will remember her on my next visit to Lourdes .
