    Dear family, my condolences and many happy memories of Joan be with you all. And may these promises from Jehovah God help you to endure. “Do not be anxious….but in everything by prayer and supplication along with thanksgiving, let your petitions be made known to God; and the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and your mental powers by means of Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7; Isaiah 25:8 NWT.

    My most sincere condolescences to the entire Sucher family. Joan was the best neighbor and friend one could ever ask for back on Village Creek Court. We started out together on that street, having kids and good times was the simple goal. We achieved both and she was the only person I would have ever considered leaving my 3 month old with as I ventured back to work. Thank goodness for the love she poured out on everyone in that smile and her joy for living. I was fortunate enough to follow in her footsteps at Oak Brook and know how much everyone loved her there. May God’s love and vivid memories be with you.

    Todd, Katie and family, so incredibly sorry for your loss, . Only knowing Joan through the fundraisers, I was still able to witness her ability to embrace every wonderful thing about her family and life. She is a wonderful role model for how people should live their life to the very fullest. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you!

    My deepest sympathy to the family. I have known Joan and Tom when they were at Holy Infant. Joan was such a pretty lady and nice friend when our kids were in grade school.
    I will keep her family in my prayers. Now she is in heaven with my husband Larry. She always enjoyed talking with him about the kids and school. God Bless You
