Memories Timeline


  1. I truly believe that Joanne is at peace now and hope that her family will find peace also. I remember very well Joanne at Lipton/Unilever. And, seeing her again at the monthly lunches with the retired girls from Lipton/Unilever. Then Joanne got a part-time job and could not be with us for the luncheon so then we would meet up with her and others for dinner. I did not see her often but it doesn't change the fact that I will miss her.

    Be a peace Joanne.

    With fondness, Helen

  2. JoAnne was my first Administrative Assistant when I became a Manager at Thomas J. Lipton, we grew together and learned the ropes. May you Rest In Peace my friend. You will be missed. My condolences to the entire DePalma family.
    God Bless
