Remembering Joan 2009


Birthday Flowers: March 23         Death-date Flowers: May 10



Fans of Joan's have contributed to flowers for her Ferncliff crypt via this website since 2005. In even-numbered years (2006 and 2008), we had flowers delivered on her birthday, March 23. In odd-numbered years (2005, 2007, 2009), flowers were delivered from BOE on her death-date, May 10.

On March 23, 2009, other fans presented their own birthday tributes.

The first two photos below are from Cascade Florists, sharing pictures from flowers that fan Cho Cheng sent on Joan's birthday. Cascade CC'd me this e-mail:

Dear Cho:

I personally delivered your floral tribute of 36 White Vendella Roses Arranged in a Vase to Ferncliff and according to your specifications, on Saturday Afternoon at 4:25 P.M.

Your Roses were left in the office on their front desk so that, they could place them in front of Joan's crypt and anytime on Sunday, at their convenience. I purposely delivered them as late as possible on Saturday so that, they would be extremely fresh and beautiful for Monday, March 23rd.

Attached, please find three photo images which I took with my camera phone. I apologize for the quality of the images, but I felt that, you would like to get a feeling for what we delivered.

Thanks again for trusting us with the honor of helping to celebrate Joan's Birthday. She was a really great actress, and her memory lives on forever, thanks to you and Stephanie.


John and Linda Torpey


P.S. I sent a copy of this email to Stephanie as well, since I know that, she appreciates your remembrance.







These next 2 birthday-flower photos were shot by Bunny, who wrote to me:

There were 4 arrangements and I took a couple of photos...all the flowers were lovely. Our arrangement is the second from the left and it was actually really pretty yellows and greens. I had tried to choose colours that would have suited Joan's apartment. It was nice to see how Joan had been remembered.







Death-Date Flowers: May 10


In honor of the 32nd anniversary of Joan's death this May 10, sixteen fans from around the world donated close to $400 through this website to have 4-dozen "Grand Beauty" roses delivered to Joan's Ferncliff crypt.


Below is a shot taken of our flowers by the kind owners of Cascade Florists in Hartsdale. (I took a couple of dozen shots myself when I visited Ferncliff on the 10th; unfortunately, due to a glitch between my new camera software and my old computer, I was unable to download those photos.)
