Born June 7, 1943 and died June 16, 2001. Joan graduated from Lincoln High School in Philly. Joan was a Regular on American Bandstand in the late 50s to early 60s.
There have been some lovely comments about Joan and as time permits, I will copy portions of them here as a fitting memorial to her. Some who knew her said she had one of the nicest personalities of all the American Bandstand regulars.
Picture is from Joan's high school yearbook.
Below 2 pictures are from someone who said I could just acknowledge as "a friend of Joan's"...and I thank this person very much for some lovely pictures to place here in memory of Joan.
I love both these pictures, especially the one on left,
which shows just how adorable Joan was!
