In Memory of Joan Praud

It is with great sadness that we morn the passing of our friend and colleague Joan Praud. Joan passed away suddenly of a heart attack on the morning of February 19, 2019. Our thoughts go out to Joan’s family and friends at this incredibly difficult time.

Joan was an extraordinary person who will be profoundly missed by us all. She was humble, authentic, and always wore a huge smile and especially as she spoke of her family, her animals, or her latest office prank.  A consummate professional, Joan contributed to all office initiatives and as many of you fondly recalled, kept her teammates on track.  If Joan wasn’t dragging someone to the gym, she was taking time to inquire about someone’s day, or simply stopping to say hello.  Today we lost a truly great friend, co-worker and overall, a human being.

This page has been set up for anyone who would like to contribute to help her husband Rick and their family, as they navigate these difficult times without Joan.
