About the Author
Joan Markwell

A mother, a grandmother, a wife to husband Denny, I was also Dad’s best
tomboy. I grew up in Lexington, Kentucky, and became a businesswoman in a variety of venues. I have a love of children, the outdoors, and water. Always ready for the next adventure, I grew up with seven brothers and sisters who, with their families, have been the nucleus of my life. My parents Jo and Bernie Fields just celebrated their 68th wedding anniversary. We have a long, loving family history.
Losing my daughter, Cindy, has taken most of the spunk out of my life. Through Softening the Grief, I am slowly regaining my drive by reaching out to others so they may better understand the bereaved mothers in their lives.
