Sr Joan was a caring and compassionate person, always there for us in our time of need. She always cared about all of our family and prayed for us daily, as well as visited when she was in town. She will always be remembered as a special person. May she rest in peace and dwell in the glories of God's love. From your loving cousin, Susan Urban

Dearest Sr Joan, Your life is a precious gift to us. Without you we won't exist as Passionist in India. We are what we are because of you.

We miss you so much and love you forever. Rest in peace with all the saints. Continually be with us and guide us through your prayers.

Sr. Joan was my wife Kathy Urban Orel's cousin. Sr. Joan led a very special life. She loved her parents and while they were alive Sr. Joan was a good and loving daughter. After their passing she gave the rest of her life to God by becoming a missionary of the Passionist Order. I'm sure God has a special place for her in heaven. Rest in peace.
