Such a wonderful lady. My condolences to her loving, devoted husband Ron and her famil . - Posted by: Tara and Jarrett (Friends ) on: Aug 25, 2019
We met Ron & Joan when we moved into Cielo Grande Park in 2011 and Ron and Joan welcomed us with genuine friendship. Patty and Joan became close friends and Ron and I shared a passion for golf and as well some poker games and multiple Saturday mornings flipping pancakes. Dinners enjoyed with both and outings were shared. We will have a hole in our hearts that Joan filled but we have lots of memories. We wish the family peace and strength in this time of sorrow but know she is in a better place. With love, Jerry and "Patty" Moore - Posted by: Jerry and Pat Moore (Friends and golf pal) on: Aug 21, 2019
