MY SINCERE CONDOLANCES TO THE BRKOVICH FAMILY . I AM SADDENED BY YOUR LOSS. MY THOUGHTS & PRAYERS ARE WITH YOU ALL AT THIS TIME. LOVE & HUGS FRIEND LILLIAN REED
My sincere condolences to Joan's family. May all the loving memories of your mom & grandma sustain you through the years. I knew Joan since high school (KHS) and then later (during the years we went to the Moose Hall dances 15 years ago). We had such wonderful times enjoying the music and laughing a lot. I also loved it when Joan hosted a dinner at her lovely Pleasant Street home inviting family and friends. She was a lovely hostess. I recently found a few photos of her mom & grandson taken after dinner, good memories. Fondly in my heart, may she rest in eternal peace and love.
Deanna my heart is breaking for you and the family right now. I can still see a smile on Joans face and hear her laugh when I think of her as I was lucky enough to know her since birth
We would like to express our deepest sympathy to the family of Joan. We know you have lots of wonderful memories of her. Loosing one’s mother is truly heartbreaking. It will get easier with time. Treasure those good memories Ruth and Rick
We are so sorry to hear of Joan's passing. She was such an integral part of the dance community when Bonnie and I were growing up. Our thoughts and love are with the family. Janet McCloy (Downie)
