After watching this illness continue within her body being wracked with pain, we prayed all night that God would allow her to escape this pain. That prayer was answered at 9:40 a.m. January 8, 2020. Joan is now alive with her body free of pain. What a blessing she has been to husband, Bill and others that have had the pleasure and honor to know her. The lady who has been all things to us is now out of reach, but someday we will see her again. We love you, Joan Mae.
As per Joan’s request, a private ceremony has taken place.
Ephesians 1:13-14. The family suggests memorials to Mogadore Baptist Church, 3750 Albrecht Avenue, Akron, OH 44312.
