I can remember meeting Joan long ago, I was just a little boy then. We were next door neighbors. I know her siblings, and her children. Elsie and I offer our prayers and condolences to Joan's family. Like many songs written about the passing of loved ones, "she has gone to a better world." Rest in Peace Joan!

I will also miss your dear mother. I thought of her as a friend, and learned many things from her. I especially loved hearing her talk about earlier times. I will keep her and all of you in my thoughts. Jo Young

Many fond memories of working with Joan when she was a active and vital member of the Umatilla Tribal Health Committee as it planned and established the Yellowhawk Community Health Center!

There are no words worthy to express sympathy to Joan's family, for the grief and heartbreak are painful. She joins her daughter and others who went before her and is embraced by the Creator. May the Creators love be with her family and friends as they learn to live without her. May the memories and moments of love she give them comfort in the days and years to come.

Prayers and thoughts to the family of Joann Burnside. May you find peace with your family and friends. The loss of two lives in such short time, may peace be with your family in times like this. May their journeys take them home to where they are suppose to go to.
