Sincere condolences and sympathy to the family and friends of Joan. from Paul Cleary.

Aunt Joan will be sadly missed. I wish that her memory will bring warm memories to all that loved and knew her. My condolences go out to you all.


TO The Boland Families…..Sorry to hear of the passing of your mom…when we lived in St. John`s we always enjoyed visiting with your mom and dad. We are sure you will miss them both but please take comfort in knowing that others are thinking of you and our prayers are for you during your time of sorrow. God Bless you all. Bob & Lydia Jeans.

Our condolences to the Boland family. Aunt Joan was such a sweet and kind woman. She will be missed by everyone that knew her. Sending thoughts and prayers to you all. God bless!

Marina & family, I am so sorry to hear of your Mother’s passing. I’ve known you Mom & Dad for the past 11 years from working at Northern Property. I have fond memories of them both, ( especially when I used to go over to fill out their postdated cheques and spent about an hour yacking with them) Your Mom was so meek & mild and John was so funny. They’d have me in the fits laughing. Your Mom is a sweet lady. May God Bless them both. Helen Fitzpatrick
