I only met Joan a few times, when she and her husband came down to NC to visit Karen. She was always so warm and welcoming! What I remember best is she would "test" Karen's crossword puzzles before she submitted them to newspapers! It gave her great joy to be able to test them ahead of time and share her findings with Karen!
