Condolence: Neil and Diane,Allan ,Mary-Jane , I just learned of Joan's passing and we send our condolences. As you know Joan was a special person in my life and career when I was hired to head up the York Central Hospital Foundation in 1977. Joan and all the great volunteer directors started what has become the best Hospital Foundation in Canada. Sorry to miss the service but Dale and I will tell Joan stories to each other this weekend and in the future. Best to all your families. Gord and Dale Durnan

Condolence From: Margaret Frise
Condolence: So sorry to read about the passing of your mom. I have fond memories of listening to her and the rest of the evening bridge club ladies chat and laugh in our living room when it was my mom's turn to host (of course we were supposed to be asleep at that time). As well as bridge club they also seemed to truly enjoy each others company at our public school events, hospital auxiliary and other community endeavors. I'm sure she will be missed!-Marg.
