My heart hurts for your family at Miss Joleen’s passing. I have only had the privilege of knowing her since moving to the area in October. Miss Joleen was so welcoming to me when I visited the church and made me feel so welcome. I will truly miss her.

By marriage, I am related to Joleen’s sister, Gloria Frendt. I am so sorry to hear of her passing and my prayers are with the family.

Condolence from Susan McKinley Phillips on May 21st, 2020 9:29 pm

I have fond childhood memories of Aunt Joleen. She was the young and fun aunt and spoiled us with ice cream and sleep overs. I remember one time she let me rummage in her jewelry box and gave me a broach from it. I’m sure it was inexpensive but I thought it was a treasure as a child. I was so glad to see her in 2018 when she took an adventurous trip with Jessica to Texas and met up with Aunt Gloria to see my dad, John McKinley. I know what joy she was to everyone around her…..she will be missed! My heartfelt prayers for all of you.

It is with my broken heart to hear that Joleen has passed. She was a very dear friend, my matron of honor (the honor was all mine) when Sonny and I were married and a joy to be with. My deepest condolences to the whole family for their loss. She will be dearly missed in life, but my memories of her and Buck will remain with me always. I am so glad I did not miss the opportunity of knowing them. My love always to them both.

Condolence from NINA Bagdasarian on May 26th, 2020 2:47 pm

Thinking of each of you at this very difficult time Dave, Ann, Michael, Jessica and Kati. I only met your mom a couple of times but I remember her fondly. May your precious memories of her keep you during this sorrowful time. Aunt NINA
