Remembering Joan

Last month, we were deeply saddened to learn that our dear colleague Joan McFadden passed away suddenly from a heart attack. We will remember Joan as a beautiful human being who was welcoming, kind, and thoughtful. Her love of family, theater, and her humility were the cornerstones of who she was.  She was respected by her colleagues; she shared the gifts of patience, kindness, and good humor with all of us. Joan was always willing to help solve a problem, find an answer, or gently walk each of us through the maze of paperwork that comes with benefits. She put everyone at ease, helping anyone and everyone with a smile. Joan was part of the Latham family for 3½ years, and she was a joy to work with.

Latham Centers has suffered a huge loss. Joan’s passing will leave a hole in our community that will be hard to fill. May Joan rest in peace, having lived a good and caring life. She will be missed more than words can express.

A memorial service will be held at The Church of the Holy Spirit in Orleans on Saturday, August 20, 2022 at 11 am. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to The Church of the Holy Spirit, 204 Monument Rd., Orleans, MA 02653.
