Dear Blazer family & Nancy,
So sad to learn of Joann’s passing. We have had a great friendship over many years and I know her to be a kind, strong, intelligent and good hearted woman. She was so very proud of her children and grandchildren and loved to share all their successes. She will be greatly missed.
