Sunday, April 11, 2010, age 83. Visitation at St. John Church, 9080 Cincinnati-Dayton Rd., West Chester, OH 45069 Wednesday, Apr. 14 from 5-8 p.m. Mass of Christian Burial Thursday at 10 a.m. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the church.
I was so sad to hear Sunday evening of Joy’s death. I will sadly miss Joy; she & Don were so supportive and fantastic to me during my engineering college days back at UC in the 70s. She was always a 2nd Mom to me. This especially hard since losing my own Mom last May and now less than a year later losing Joy. Peace and God’s love to the family.
Don and Jill, Bob and I and my mom, Dolores Bergman, send our sympathy to you and your families.
I am sorry we will not be able to make it up for the lay out or Mass. Mom is in St. Charles Care Center and I am unable to get her into the car any more. Also Bob’s mom is very ill.
You will be in our prayers.
What a gem! She will be missed by all who knew and loved her. Knowing her brings a smile to our hearts.
Blessings to her family.
My thoughts and prayers with your family at this time.
