  • Our condolences to all of Jean’s family, and especially to Joan! 🌸 We visited at Hartney reunion about 20 years ago at our sister Shirley’s campsite. When Jean and Joan walked in, it seemed like time stood still! Still looking great, and side by side as I remember them during school times! Twins have a special bond. I remember Jean working at the Drug Store and Joan at Hills! I have a couple of pictures of them, from late 50’s, that Shirley took with her little Brownie camera. Also remember Joe working at Hartney 1961 installing water works. Long time ago, good memories! Blessings! Bob & Edith (Morden) Tarbet, Barrhead, AB (Shirley will try to contact Joan later.). - Posted by: Edith (Morden) Tarbet (Old friend) on: Mar 16, 2022
