I grew up two houses down from the Shipmans and they were like family to my brother and me.  Many wonderful memories of being included in their family lives and celebrations.  Joanna walked me from the school bus to my class room each morning when I was in the first grade.  From the time she was a child, she was one of the sweetest people I ever knew.  You have my deepest sympathy and prayers at this time.

My sincere condolences to Kenny and Sheila and the rest of Joanna’s family. She has been my wonderful landlady and friend for four years. She and Kenneth were very kind to me. We had great chats when I went over to pay the rent. A very sweet, funny lady.
