I know my Mom( Marian Wempe Niceswanger) had many great times with Joan..As kids,I remember our family visiting and having fun on the farm .I had one of my first nursing jobs at the old Mercy hospital in Ft.Dodge. So I would chat with Joan at Hy-Vee. In later years I was tickled to see Joan at the Ft.Dodge Mall. She was a very special lady. We just lost my Mom in January .My deep condolences to all of you.
