Joan was one of the first to greet us when we bought at Venice Park. She pushed me to join the social committee and then she quit! Joan was special and always had a smile. We will miss her. Blakie & Tim O’Dea

Our condolences to Joan’s family. We only got acquainted with Joan in the last few years of her life as our next door neighbour in Venice Park. She always greeted us with her beautiful smile as though she had known us all our lives. We will surely miss her absence when we get to return to Venice from Canada. Mary and Fred Chalmers

Joan was an amazing woman. We used to see her around Venice on the island and spot her in many stores. Joan had an amazing love for her friends and family, Joan also loved to laugh. We are honored to have known her. May she rest in peace. Judy and Tony Turlenko Venice, Fl.

Joan and my Mom were best buddies and bridge partners. Their friendship goes way back to St. Stephens Episcopal church in Troy, Michigan. That friendship continued at Venice Park condos where they both resided. Joan loved picnics. While visiting my mother in Venice during spring break, Joan planned a picnic by the beach and included the whole Hotton/Beall clan. She will really be missed by all of us. With love, Pat Buller and family

My sympathies to the whole family. I have great memories of your mother. She was a great friend and bridge partner to my mother Betty Beall. I remember your parents once babysat our kids in Venice and took the boys to 2 jetties they were so excited, and your mom loved a picnic and always planned one at the beach when we were in Venice. A great women, may her memories help you through this time. Sincerely, Peggy Klempay

Joan and I shared a love for plants. She always had the biggest smile on her face when talking about her favorite plants outside her window. I will miss that radiant smile of hers. You will be missed by everyone at Venice Park. Rest in Peace, Joan.
