To the Onstead Family, I'm so very sorry for your loss. I remember your mother and father growing up at Stanwix Apts, y'all lived above us. We grew up together and had a lot of fun together. Remembering your boxer Bootsie, friendly dog. I'm sending prayers to the Onstead Family for comfort and strength. Love & Hugs, your childhood neighbor. Roxie

Joanne always brought a smile to the Denbigh Community Center's Morning Stretch Exercise Classes. She would encourage all of us to join with her as she jogged around the class and a lot of us did. She truly enjoyed life and was already missed when she could no longer attend class. My condolences to her family and friends. May God bless you, strengthen you & give you peace during this time of loss.
