We were stunned to learn of Joan's passing today. She was an incredibly compassionate person and veterinarian who always took the time to listen and to share her knowledge. Sometimes, hours after an initial conversation, she'd call back to talk through even more alternative solutions that she'd been researching. There were so many times that her diagnosis and treatment plan hit the mark right out of the gate that I can't even put a number on it. But without a doubt, I'll miss her thoughtfulness, her wit, her attitude and her advice.

Dear Doug and children, We are so sorry for your loss. Dr. Greenwood was our vet for all our pets, even coming to our home when you were building yours. She was more than a vet in that we shared so much from visits in the motor vet mobile, to the small trailer on the farm, to our home and finally your home. We watched the children grow up and shared in her enjoyment of them. She will be missed by many. May you know that the Lord has a special place for her in heaven. We will always remember her.

My condolences to the Vantiggelen and Greenwood family. Dr. Greenwood cared for our animals for many years. She treated her patients like her own pets. She will be missed. May God give you his strength, comfort, and peace during this most difficult time.

Dr. Greenwood is the sweetest woman my family and I know. She was the best vet we took our fur babies to. We miss her already, but we are relieved her pain has been lifted from her shoulders. May she Rest In Peace now that God has her in His hands. She will make a beautiful guardian angel. We miss and love you Joan.

Dear Doug, Alan, and Vanessa,

I am so very sorry to learn of the loss of your wonderful wife and mother. I only met her a few times but always thought of how very fortunate and blessed you all were to have her with you and what a compassionate and accomplished woman she was. I am sure she enriched and completed your lives in a multitude of ways. Please know that as incredibly painful as it is right now, there is a genuine, wonderful hope that she is safe and waiting for all of you.
