Following her sister’s death, Joan put together a tribute essay for Britain’s Daily Mail newspaper.
She wrote, “I don’t think I will ever recover from the sadness of losing my beautiful baby sister… She will live on in the wonderful memories I have of her from our childhood and particularly from the last 15 years. I feel her spirit, I hear her wonderful laugh and I see her all the time in the hundreds of photos of her sprinkled around my home. She wasn’t just a star – to me she was an entire galaxy.”
