One thought on “Joan C. Vlangas 11/5/2015”
  1. Chris and Elizabeth, I’m so sorry for your loss. Joan was a wonderful woman, full of life, love and had a great sense of humor. She was a generous person, always looking out for the other and helping where she could. She loved bingo and at times my mother would go with her, because she would say: “Joan is great to be around and we have a lot of fun”. She will be missed and I hope her love and the memories of her will help fill the emptiness you feel now. Know that you are in my prayers.
    Love, Maureen
