Sandy & family, I am so sorry to hear of Joan's passing. She was a mother figure to me for many years at Fry Communications. She was the one that I didn't want to tell I was getting married 26 years ago. She gave me her blessings. Lots of advice, great advice from Joanie as I called her. She is reunited with Jim and Jimmy. My sincere thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. Rest in Peace Joanie I love you. Beth Bailey Miller

My deepest condolences to Sandy and family.  I loved Joan very very much.  She was truly the one who took me under her wing here at Fry.   She was a true friend that everyone was glad to know.  We had so many laughs and she even taught me to love red beet eggs! LOL I think of her every time I make them.  May you find comfort at this time she is at peace and free of pain.
