The obituary for Marian's sister, Joan Diane LeFrank, was published in the Asbury Park Press on December 12, 2010:
Joan Diane LeFrank [of Palo Alto, California], 79, died unexpectedly on Friday Nov. 26, 2010, at her home in Palo Alto, Calif. Born in Maplewood, Joan lived most of her life in the San Francisco Bay area. Joan graduated from Springfield College in Massachusetts and was a retired Physical Education teacher. As a basketball, softball and tennis coach, she passed her love of athletics to her family, particularly tennis. She was a faithful and longtime fan of the Stanford University Girls Basketball team. Joan's amazing hobbies included playing the ukulele and banjo and singing Ragtime and Honky-tonk blues. Her artistic talents were many, including painting, stained glass, knitting, ceramic tiling, and home renovations. She enjoyed traveling the coasts of California, New England, and particularly Cape Cod, where she once owned and ran summer Day Camps for children. She held close friends dear in every corner of her travels. A life filled with passion and a great sense of humor, she spread her laughter, engaging all with a knack for making people around her feel comfortable and happy.
Joan was predeceased by her sister, Marian Weise; and her brother, Robert LeFrank. She is survived by her six nieces and nephews and their families, including Michael Weise, Vienna, Va., Steve Weise, New Fairfield, Conn., Billie Ellen Weise, Ocean Grove, Robert Weise, Wall, Gretchen Wolff, Little Silver, and Daniel Weise, Middletown. To her 16 great-nieces and great-nephews and a great-great-niece, Christmas ornaments, specially picked for them throughout their lives, will adorn their Christmas trees with her love forever. She filled all of our lives with many happy memories. Joan will be greatly missed by her family and many friends because of her fun-loving, free-spirited lifestyle.
A private memorial ceremony will be held by her family.
