I was a high school classmate of Joan. She was so excited and happy to attend our 50th class reunion. It was important to her and I know she had a great time. I enjoyed visiting with her. Please accept my deepest sympathy on the loss of your mother and may God grant her eternal peace. Delores Azzarello
I wish I could be there for you. I send my love and prayers.
The 50th Weir High School class reunion brought many fond “hellos” and sadly, some final “goodbyes”. As poignant as the goodbyes are, we were so fortunate to meet again after half a century. I did not know that Joan’s middle name was Madeline, but I knew much more….,she had a shyness brightened by perseverance. She played in the band —- and marched to the beat of her own drum. My heart and my prayers go out to Joan’s family.
To the Family of Joan Renner Kirkpatrick. Your have my deepest sympathy, and may you find comfort in the many memories you have all shared together. I was so glad she was able to make our 50th reunion. May she rest in peace. A classmate. Sandra Gorsky Robbins
Roger, I know this is a little late but hope you receive my condolences. I am Joan’s cousin who talked to you at the class reunion, Nancy. WE had a good time recalling old times & family. We never realize untill it is too late in life how nice it is to have family. Your Mom was a good person & she did a wonderful job in raising you. I guess the same could be said of your sister although I have never meet her. Talked to Beverly Livengston & she said she was at the funeral home & talked to Linda. Give our best to your family & if there is anything I can do from here let me know. God Bless, in Christian love. Alex & Nancy (Robinson) Taflan.
