    Joanne was such a warm and friendly gift to the Woburn Senior Center. When I first retired and started going to the Senior Center, I didn’t know anyone there. Joanne greeted my with the warmth of an old friend. Every time thereafter, she greeted me with a hug and that beautiful smile of hers. She always made me feel so welcome and comforted.
    I will very much miss her bright light at the Center!
