My deepest sympathy to the family of Joan Klier. I worked with Joan at Lear Corporation in Wauseon. She was a beautiful soul inside and out. I kept in contact with her, and shared many great conversations with her. I will miss her, but know she has been reunited with her husband, daughter and son. RIH Joan, until we meet again
