I have such wonderful memories of Mrs. Shidler. She was such a wonderful librarian and neighbor. She used to order all the new books by all our favorite authors and always greeted us with a big smile whenever she saw us. She always seemed more like a grandma and a friend than anything else. We moved away right after graduation, but I have always remembered her fondly and was sorry I couldn't make it to the services. My prayers are with her and my sincerest sympathy goes out to her entire family. ❤

Our sincere sympathies in the loss of Joan. I always will have fond memories of Joan as the librarian when our children were young. She was one of the most warmhearted person I have known, always very cheery with a smile on her face. I know she will be deeply missed and our heart and prayers go out to the family.

Don and Joann were like a second set of parents to me when I was in highschool almost 50 years ago. Their daughter Terri was my best Friend. We had so much fun together. I just saw Joann last summer and she was still the sweet spirit that she was 50 years ago. Enjoy your everlasting life with Don, Mike, brother Don and grand baby. You are with the lord now. He has another angel! Love you Joann

My favorite memory of Joan was when we first moved to the Otterbein area over 30 years ago. I brought my two baby girls (Lauren & Jenna) to the library and Joan greeted us with open arms, making us feel so very welcome into the community. Each week we came back and enjoyed her grandmotherly attention she gave to the three of us. Love and hugs to the family - Nancy Lee
