My sympathy to Joni's family.  I remember her from the IGA and visited with her later when she was working at Walmart in Van Wert.  She was a kind and compassionate lady.  I am sad to hear of her passing.

My thoughts and prayers go out to all of you. I remember working with Joni at Union Products. Everyone thought we looked like sisters so we told them we were cousins and everyone believed us. i didn''''''''t tell them any different until Joni had left.
She was awesome.
May God be with each of you to love and comfort you as only He can.
