So sorry to hear of Joanne's passing and that of both daughters. In fact I remember that the girls were the recipients of my childhood wooden doll house after I outgrew playing with dolls and the little furniture. Joanne was also a wonderful caregiver to my mother Evie for a short time before she passed in 1997. I'm sure she will be missed by many.
