Please see below the tribute written in the Marble bulletin when Joanie retired in June 2004:

With profound gratitude we celebrate the ministry of Joanie Collyer, who joined the Marble staff in 1972. She has served this church in many, many capacities, starting as an Administrative Assistant, later working with the Marble Singles. She was a member of the original committee that founded our volunteer outreach program. For many years she was in charge of the Marble publications and, most recently, brought great sensitivity and vision to her work as Director of Small Groups. Her life is truly a spiritual journey, and all of us on the staff and in the congregation have been blessed and enriched by the sincerity and depth of her remarkable journey.
