It was with such sadness that Soroptimist South Africa members learnt of Joan Goudswaard’s passing. Just a few weeks ago we conferenced and partied together in Durban. How wonderful, and in such character, that she decided to spend time with South African Soroptimists even though she was recovering from ‘flu and not feeling her best.
She was a woman of integrity who touched many, many lives……not least, the hundreds of Soroptimists in South Africa whom she had interacted over the years of her membership.
Soroptimists in South Africa are remembering with love a truly remarkable woman.
