Joan will be dearly missed at the Farmers Market. She was so friendly and an outstanding cook. She was very gracious and even offered to make some of her delicious goodies for me over the winter. Her banana bread was the I have ever had. I hope someone in the family has her recipes and can carry on her legacy. Rest in peace Joan. You will be missed by so manhy
