Joellen was a coworker at Internal Medicine where we both worked. She was always wearing a smile and only had kind words for everyone. Her work ethic was admirable , and she was sorely missed when she left her position. She was the coworker that you wished everyone would be. I am saddened to learn of her passing at such a young age. My condolences to her family. You have lost a family member to be proud of .
