Life Story of Joan Heather Easton


To Joan and her family This book has been created over a period of three to four months. During these months, I have met with Joan every few weeks to chat about everything from her favourite colour (any guesses?) to how she felt the day she got married. Every second page of this book will have a photo from Joan’s life, progressing from when she was a baby through till her life as a grandmother. During my chats with Joan, I would show her one of these photographs and ask her about when each photo was taken, what was happening and how she felt about it. This book holds all of her responses. Photos hold a thousand memories, and it has been such an honour to sit with Joan and see how her face lights up when she sees each of these pictures and recounts the memories behind them. There are some pages that do not have a photo with them. These pages are for the purpose of collating information than I have received not from Joan, but from her family. They help to fill the gaps of Joan’s life that have not been documented by pictures or memories. Joan, you are such a lovely lady and I will miss our fortnightly chats. I hope that this book is able to somewhat represent your wonderful life, and that you and your family can enjoy reading it for years to come. Thank you so much for the opportunity to write about someone so incredible.
