In 2008, I moved from Milwaukee to our hometown, Cedar Rapids. I'm most thankful that during those 8 years I was able to drive to Muscatine several times a year to have lunch with my sister, Joan - places by the river were our favorite. Now, almost 10 years later, I'm the age she was in 2008. How fast that time went! Carol Nilles

McAreavy family, I am so sorry for the loss of your Mom. My Mom and I visited with Joan a few times while she was at Lutheran Homes. She was always happy and fun to talk to. Prayers for you all!

What a great family she leaves behind. John was a teacher of mine in the fifties and brother Gregg was a friend of he and your mother. Our condolences to all of you!
