Joanna Guise (née Rowntree)

1943 - 2019
Died 5.15 am on Friday 29th of March 2019
following years of illness.

Joanna had been bedbound for two weeks, during which she was well nursed and in very little pain. She was happy to be at home and had the opportunity to speak with and hear from many friends and family.

It was her wish to be buried at Adel Quaker Meeting House burial ground, which 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 pm
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.
