Joan Lee Kaufmann (Joan Jones-Kaufmann) of St. Louis County passed away Sunday, October 27, 2019, surrounded by her loved ones at the age of 73.
Joannie is the loving wife of Donald Kaufmann (Honey), and dear sister of Bruce (Ginger) Holt, a dear sister-in-law, aunt, great aunt, cousin, and friend to many.
Joannie will always be remembered by the people she met throughout her life, for her beautiful personality, smile, charm and quick wit’. Her love and compassion she showed, wasn’t limited only to humans. All her dogs throughout her life were her babies.
Her photo doesn’t show her beautiful blue eyes, one feature that will be missed by all, but it does show her beautiful smile that brought a ray of sunshine to any room.
Joannie’s passing has left a void in the hearts of her friends, family and anyone who met her. She will be sorely missed by all who loved her, as well as Auggie her currant dog.
Love Always, till we meat again.
SHE IS GONE
You can shed tears that she is gone
Or you can smile because she has lived
You can close your eyes and pray that she will come back
Or you can open your eyes and see all that she has left
Your heart can be empty because you can’t see her
Or you can be full of the love that she shared
You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday
Or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday
You can remember her and only that she is gone
O you can cherish her memory and let it live on
You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back
Or you can do what she would want: smile, open your eyes, love and go on.
