Joan Dippelsman Obituary, Death – It is with heavy hearts and profound sorrow that we announce the passing of a beloved mother, Joan May Lamke nee Dippelsman, on the 7th of September 2023. Joan was a vibrant and cherished member of our family, and her departure leaves an irreplaceable void in our lives.
Her passing comes as a shock to us all, as she had recently been filled with joy at the prospect of celebrating the 150th anniversary of Allan State School, an event she had eagerly awaited. Joan was more than just a mother; she was a beacon of love, warmth, and unwavering support. Her dedication to her family knew no bounds, and her love was felt by all fortunate enough to know her.
Her infectious laughter and gentle guidance were a source of comfort to her children and a testament to her remarkable character. One of the most cherished memories we will forever hold close to our hearts is her enthusiasm for the Allan State School 150-year celebration. Joan’s connection to the school ran deep, having attended as a child herself and later watching her own children and grandchildren pass through its doors.
Her eyes sparkled with anticipation as she talked about the event, relishing the opportunity to share stories of her school days and the pride she felt for her alma mater. Joan’s passing leaves a void that cannot be filled, but we find solace in the countless memories of her kindness, wisdom, and love that she bestowed upon us. Her legacy will live on through her children, grandchildren, and the many lives she touched during her lifetime.
In remembrance of Joan’s remarkable life, we invite family and friends to join us in a celebration of her journey at St. Williams Grovely on Thursday, the 14th of September at 11:00 a.m. This gathering will be a testament to the love and admiration she garnered throughout her life. We will come together to share stories, offer support, and celebrate the incredible woman who brightened our lives in so many ways.
As we bid farewell to our beloved Joan, let us remember her with smiles and laughter, for that is how she would have wanted to be remembered. While our hearts are heavy, we find strength in the enduring love she leaves behind. She will forever hold a special place in our hearts, and her memory will be cherished for generations to come.
