"Joan, was one of the nicest Ladies I have ever know. I had the honor and privilege of getting to know and work with "Jo" as we knew her at the Cannon Towel Store in the late 70's. I was a Senior at AL.Brown High School. One of the fondest memories I have of Jo was when some of her Family came in from England and she invited me to go with all of them to spend the day in Asheville and go to the Biltmore House. My deepest Sympathy goes out to the Family."
