This page is dedicated to those friends and family members of the GWRRA Chapter Y group that have been such a special part of our rides, chapter fun, friendship, and more. These people hold a dear place in the hearts of many of our chapter members and we wish to use this page to remember them.

Joan Cope-Reisinger

Friends, Dan Reisinger has asked me to share with you sad news of Joan’s passing on Wednesday, June 23rd, 2021.

As many of you know, Joan has been valiantly fighting the progressive effects of dementia over the past few years. She so enjoyed the chapter events. Her quiet demeanor, sweet smile and pleasant greetings at Y events will be remembered and very much missed. Serving for many years on Y Staff and as Newsletter Editor, Joan pulled together interesting articles, pictures and chapter flyers each month to keep us all “in the know” and looking forward to the next event.
