Sue John Sarah and Anna


We all have fond memories of Joan and Philip together as a feisty but fun loving and happy couple. So many adventures but always eager for news of the family. We are glad to be thinking of them running free together and at peace.

Sue and John Gall, Sarah and Anna.


With fond and happy memories of time spent with both Joan and Philip.



Dear Kirsty, Andy and Sam
Thinking of you all today and remembering what a wonderful person your Mother/Gran was. She was a strong determined kind lady and I will never forget the kindness she showed to Amber. She was there for Amber as a mentor and to support her through some difficult times. Saying a little prayer for Joan and sending you all hugs and lots of love xx



What a woman and what a legacy she has left in the three of you. Sending you so much love from Jane Andy Andrew and Caitlin xxxxx

I first met Joan at a film conference in Cannes with her husband.Kitty Cooper and Charles were also friends linked to the film industry .Joan had her own company.
She had a wonderful sense of humour, was an excellent cook and loved her garden.I spent time at her house.We kept in touch until until she became unwell.She would say :
' Well what about that curry ? We still haven't had it !
I'll remember her with fondness . Pam .

The loss of a mother, no matter what age, is devastating. Sadly with Alzheimer's you literally lose them twice. Joan cared deeply and I am happy to make this small contribution in her memory.



As a close friend of Joan's daughter I knew Joan second hand - until the end of her days when, unusually, we spent her last six days and nights with her. Even at the end her true spirit, sense of humour and strength of character shone through and touched us all. I think at whatever stage you may have met Joan, for however long or short a time - she was a lady you would certainly never forget.

Mum would be at Joan’s funeral if she was able. In many ways they were very close and this is a small token from her to Joan with love.

The friendship that Joan and I had was 40 years old, starting (typically for her!) with a provocative and blunt remark, leading to many happy, entertaining and totally memorable times together. She was one of a kind: someone who made a real impression on the world (for the better). She was a pioneer: fearless, adventurous and visionary - and very determined :-) Her wonderful generosity of spirit and her support will for ever be an inspiration to me.

Memories of Joan as a kind and hospitable friend. She gave us some lovely lunches ans other gifts as well.

And what a lovely photograph you chose!

Well what can I say about Joan , ok so Joan was probably one of the most challenging ,difficult opinionated ladies I’ve had the pleasure of working for, but at the same time a kind , caring wonderful person that showed interest in me , & my children she had fabulous stories to tell about her sea travels with Phillip who she adored and loved dearly she also told us of her love for her children , it was an absolute pleasure to be able to look after Joan in her final weeks , knowing she’s now sailing god knows where with Phillip and is now at peace xxx

Kirsty Booth


Sailing was a passion for both my mum & dad.
Dad of course took this photo which I love. I choose to believe they are reunited sailing the ocean hand in hand … bottle of good vino also to hand!
