We are very sorry to see that Joan has passed on, We remember other days in years past when Joan was so active with the limo service - even taken a snowy run to Albany airport with my son and new wife back in 1989. What a start to their honeymoon! She had the ice cream store we enjoyed with ice cream cake available. And Joan did work with us for a while at The Williams Inn as hostess in the dining room. She was a gutsy gal ready to take on whatever came her way. We are so glad to have known her and her husband, Bucky. They were a hardy and fun-loving couple. Don't see many like them these days!

Our condolences.

Carl and Marilyn Faulkner
Wiliams Inn, Retired

Joannie was one of a kind, a kind soul, loved by all. She will be missed by all. May you take comfort in the woman, mother, grandmother, friend that she was to so many. I will miss her infectious smile, always a happy camper. Sincere condolences to the family.
