holds some of her distant relations.
The funeral was held on
Saturday 13th April
at Adel Quaker Meeting House with
the Committal at the grave at 2.30
the Memorial Celebration in the
Meeting House at 3.00pm.
and was followed by a funeral tea.
During the Committal, you are welcome to join with family and friends at the
graveside (where there may be quite a crowd) or to attend the silent Meeting
for Worship in the Meeting House.
Joanna loved colour in everything. In her honour, hose present were invited to wear
something bright and beautiful on the day.
In keeping with her lifelong commitment towards friendship and community, it
was Joanna’s special request that anyone wishing to express their feelings
with flowers would give a special bunch to a friend, relative or
neighbour in her memory.
Those many people who were unable to get to Joanna’s celebration, were
asked to join in spirit by remembering Joanna for a few moments on that day.
