Joan Higdon Hegge

My condolences to all of you who knew and loved Joan Higdon Hegge. I was very fond of Joan and her wonderful sense of humor and her beaming smile. You were so lucky to have her. The world is a lot sadder with her leaving. Maureen Grady-Gerrein


My Condolences

Laura, Steve, Maria and family. My deepest sympahties. Your mother was one of the kindest people I knew, always quick to say hi to me, with her broad smile, at Sunday Mass for all of these many many years. She will forever be an icon there for her service in the choir. Also, I read Pauline’’s comment – I’m pretty sure I was part of those Fort Mitchell “home school” days, circa 1974, lol.
God Bless, Scott Shelton


Super Mom

Laura, I remember your mom so fondly when we would organize our “Home School” sessions. She was so vibrant and so talented. I feel privileged to have know her. May your memories be full of nothing but delight.
Pauline Baumann
Betsy Banks’ mom


Beloved Aunt Joanie

There are no words to convey how much she meant to us all and how much she will be missed. She has joined her beloved husband Bob in their rest with our eternal Father. We hold the whole family in our hearts during this time. Much love from Karen, Mark, Isabelle and Madeline RingswaldEgan


sympathy

Our thoughts and prayers are for Joan’s family, from her friends at Licking Valley Quilters.


With Sympathy

To the Hegge and Higdon families: please know that I m so sorry for the passing of Joan. She was always a smiling face and friendly person to be with. I sang in the choir with her for many years as did my older sisters (Greis family). I pray that the memories of her kindness will bring comfort and peace to both families.
