My sympathies for the family. I went to school with Joan at Dixie and sat at the same table at the recent reunion. I talked to her and told her I had a crush on her in school. She laughed. I did not realize she was Ill. I know you will miss her, she was a very vibrant person at 18 with a great personality. I’m glad I was able to talk to her before she died. Sincerely, Mike Michael
Sorry to hear the news, was glad to have seen her at our reunion on Sept. 11th. Also, glad I did make it to her table to speak to her. Prayers to all family for your strength in this time of loss.
i went to school with joan, she was a sweet person and i am so sorry for your loss
Dear Jonel, I was shocked to read of Joan’s death in today’s Enquirer. All of the Dixie Heights Class of 1960 clasmates were so happy to see her at the 50th Class Reunion on September 11. She sat next to me for the class picture. I have notified all the other classmates who are on our e-mail list. We never guessed that she had less than one week to live.

My condolences to Joni’s family.I bIelieve I am your mothers sister-in-law. My name is Sherry Behler.I have been trying to find my brother Jerry Pence. I met her the night her and my bother got married. Lost contact with him until our brother Phlip was killed in 1985. I have been trying to find him for 20 yeqrs. Our cousin Tom Holcomb said he saw Joni about 2 months ago and told him Jerry died.I know the grief you are going through because I just lost my husband this July of lung cancer also. I would like to talk to someone from Joni’s family. I am the only living person of the Pence family. My phone number is 625-1161. Again I wish her family well
