On April 26, 2021, Joan Schuyler Macfarlan Jost of Lewisburg was called to glory and in to the loving embrace of our father, her husband, and her four legged friends waiting across the rainbow bridge.

She was born in Ridgewood, NJ on May 23, 1939 to Allen Dunlop and Helen Schuyler Van Ness Macfarlan.
