ULLOM, Joan C. McCardle 75, our loving mother, of McMechen, WV, went home to be with our Lord and Savior, on 14 September 2006, surrounded by her loving family.
Joan was born October 17, 1930 in Wheeling, W.Va., a daughter of the late Roy E. and Catherine Lahey McCardle.
Her life was full of love and she gave it unconditionally. Her deep devotion to her family was the most important thing to her, a trait she said her mom gave her. She had a delightful sense of humor and was quick to laugh. She had a unique way of making people feel that they were part of her inner circle. She was a true and faithful servant and a tireless worker.
Her accomplishments were many including Certified Public Lay Speaker, 45 year member of the McMechen-Benwood United Methodist Church, President of her college astronomy class and President of the McMechen Elementary School PTA.
She earned her Associates Degree from West Virginia Northern Community College at the age of 72 from which she also retired after 25 years of service. She was involved with the United Methodist Women, her church choir and the Lion

Aunt Joan was a wonderful person full of joy and love. She was such a pleasant, spiritual individual who would go out of her way to do anything for anyone. I have many memories of her from my childhood that I will cherish for as long as I live. She was always cheerful and upbeat and never in a bad mood. She had a certain glow about her. It was a year ago this week that Aunt Joan spent a few weeks in paradise on earth Hawaii, from this past week on until eternity, Aunt Joan will be in Paradise with our Lord and Savior!

I find it hard to believe that another year has passed without you. I still miss you dearly and wish you were here. I dream of you and I doing things together and just chatting. It is almost like you are there and then I wake and long for you… I miss you and love you, your little baby….

I was so blessed to spend many Sunday dinners at the Ullom household with Spring. They always took me in as one of their own. Thank you grandma for all of the great dinners and good times had. I will miss you much!! Spring, Christie, and my family you are in my thoughts and prayers. Wish I could be there to give each and everyone of you a big hug. I love you all much!! Karrie

I was very lucky to have known Joan, she was a wonderful mother,grandmother,aunt,cousin,and friend to many. The best part is that my daughter Lauren will remember her “GG” and that at her young age of 5 she realized how special she was for her PapPap and his family.

In her book “A letter to a child with cancer” AKA “The Dougy Letter” she explains; When we have done all the work we were sent to earth to do we are allowed to shed our body-which imprison’s our soul like a cocoon encloses the future butterfly. When time is right we can let go of it and we will be free of pain,free of fears and worries, free as a very beautiful butterfly, returning home to God.

Dr. Elizabeth Kubler Ross MD.

When I read this I thought of Joan, I thank her for being the woman she was, for being the mother she was and most of all for always welcoming us into her heart. She will be missed, but like that butterfly she will be free and doing what she did best watching over all of us who she held very near to her heart.

Joan was always an encouragement to me. She always greeted me with a hug and something nice to say. My memories of her will remain. I enjoyed my time with her at McMechen United Methodist Church in worship and with the Choir.

I will be praying for the family: Bobby, Doug, Lisa and Beth.

God bless you all at this time.

Momma, I can’t believe it has been a year since you left us. I made it through, even when I didn’t think I would. I still miss you more than words can say and think of you every day. My garden grows full of your lovely gifts and I take comfort in them. I love you give Daddy a hug and a kiss from his “stinky” and tell him I love him too!
