    Joan was my Nurse Practitioner. She was wonderful at her job, and always did her best with me and my care.. She was a wonderful amazing and talented NP. I moved away from the area, and although I have a good NP now, she is not Joan.

    I am sure she will be greatly missed by her family, patients, and friends.

    Joan, an example to all,of what a person should be. She will be missed by so many. She has touched so many lives with her undying spirit. There is nothing she wouldnt do for others to help them. Her children were her pride and joy. She was a smart ,compassionate practitioner to those she delivered care to. Joan was a hero to her friends, patients, and family to have endured her illness with courage, sometimes fear, but always with grace and dignity. Love you my friend

    I’m so sad to hear about the passing of Joan, I worked with her at MeritCare hospital during the 90’s and also was a year behind her at JHS. Joan was a wonderful woman and nurse, always a soft friendly smile to greet those she knew. My prayers go out to her family. Another beautiful life cut short. She was a joy to know.

    So sorry for your loss. I have so many great memories with Joan. Loved her positive attitude and knee slapping laugh! I went to nursing school with Joan and lived in Jamestown for a summer. That summer was so fun because of Joan. We seem to have “went on with life “and separate ways but she was the type of friend you could run into and continue on as if no time had went by. In my thoughts and prayers. Becky Camas
