Dear Ralph-I am so very sorry for your loss of the love of your life. I just learned of this from the Wells Express. I am sorry that I didn't know about this sooner so I could have attended the service. You and Joanne were great supporters of Wells, and of me when I was new to the Boston area. You and she are a role model for a great marriage of equals. Joanne was an amazing advocate for business women and for Wells. She has left a lasting and positive impression on the world and on the lives she touched. She will be forever in your heart and those of us she was so supportive of. Hugs, Karin

Ralph, Joanne was a caring and thoughtful mentor. I will not forget how when we got stuck in a snow storm on our way to the Syracuse airport, and she knew just what to do to keep us warm and safe. She was so bright. Together you were always both so warm and kind. Thank you. I'm sorry I won't be on the north shore Saturday, but will be thinking of her in Aurora, our shared home away from home. I ache for your loss and send you peace and love. Jessi

I was so sorry to hear of Joanne's passing. My parents were life long members of Ascension church, and she and Ralph were so wonderful when both my parents passed in the last year. My families condolences go to Ralph and the rest of their family.

Ralph, please accept our condolences. Joanne was a strong and caring person and will be missed by many. We will never forget the kindness both you and Joanne extended to Ed and I during a difficult time for us. Ed will always remember the time working at the Boat Shop as a life changing opportunity.

Dear Ralph and Family,
Pepe and I were shocked and saddened to learn of Joanne's passing. Even during our college days she was a mover and a shaker, a no-nonsense presence who got things done, but who could still have fun. May she rest in peace.
