Joan Margaret Fyfe SpandreOur darling mom died peacefully Saturday December 18, 2010. Her last words were " I am not afraid" because of the happy prospect of being reunited with her dear Louis and infant daughters Christine and Rachel.
Born July 19, 1922 in Cumberland on Eden England to Andrew and Marie Little Fyfe. Joan had an idyllic childhood in the seaside town of Wallasey, with her beloved sister and brother, Doris and Jim. Daily excursions to the beach and swims in the sea were some of her happiest memories.
Following WWII, Joan emigrated to the U.S. and settled in Utah, where she met her darling Louis. Their marriage was one of complete devotion and their home was filled with love and laughter.
The final lines of Joan's life history states " How could I be so lucky? To have married the best husband, who made us all feel completely loved and wonderful. Then to top it all off, to be blessed with the worlds best daughters and their beautiful families. What a wonderful life, and I think it isn't luck, but blessings from a loving Heavenly Father. It really has been a wonderful life."
