January 26th, 2019

The three of us remember "Joanie" in our younger days, while growing up in
Chicago's Edgewater District, with our beloved parents, Max and Harriet Tempkins (nee Korer). Our grandmother, Ann Korer, nee Spungin, was the oldest sister of four sisters,
including Ida Wolf.

We fondly remember Joanie as a teenager, with her adorable, dancing, dark brown eyes,
dark hair, and beautiful smile. Those were days of the very long skirts...going all the way
down to the ankles, but Joanie with her great figure wore those skirts so well.

We also remember our monthly Family Club. We had a large family back then and it was a joy to see everyone, including Joanie's sister and brother, Barbara and Howard, Howard's wife Barbara, and of course Joanie.

Time and events have separated us, but our wonderful memories of the long ago will
never fade and be a part of us forever.

G-d bless Joanie. May she rest in peace.
