We learned with shock and great sadness of the death of a former Blues Festival volunteer-Joy Wellman’s passing on June 27th. Joy volunteered for several years at the Quincy Area Blues Festival, cheerfully helping wherever we needed her to help. She was young and full of life, which makes this even more of a surprise to know that she is gone from this world. She joins several great folks that we’ve lost over the years-may hers and all of our great Blues Society friends memory continue to shine in everything that we do.
Visitation for Joy Wellman will be held from 4-8pm in the Duker & Haugh funeral home in Quincy, with Services to be held at 10:45am on Friday, and also at 11:30am at St. Anthony Catholic Church, with burial at St Anthony Cemetary. Memorials can be made to the Quincy Humane Society or The Sammy Fund. Condolences may be expressed online at www.whig.com
