Joan and Joe were married on November 3, 1962. A U. S. Navy family that would leave University City in 1975 and return in 1986. A devout Catholic, Joan’s unconditional love for her family was matched by her incredible smile, brilliant green eyes and her wonderful grace. We will miss hearing her terrific laugh and words of wisdom.
