It is with profound sadness that I learned of the passing of Joann Wells. I have many memories of Joann, Bob and the family over the years at our summer cottage on the Trent-Severn Waterway. Condolences to all. With love. Michael Kehoe

Joann is one of the most genuinely gracious loving humans that I have ever known. I have had the privilege of knowing Joann through our Qi Gong group. Not nearly long enough, Joann will be sorely missed by her friends family and anyone who knew her. In love and respect Lee
