    My mother was Ruth Lyle and worked for many years at BCH ER with Joanne. I heard her name mentioned so many times about the incredible experiences they shared in the ER and were good friends. I finally met Joanne at my mother’s funeral and what a wonderful person she was to meet as she graciously shared memories. What these nurses went through in an Emergency Room has my complete respect. God Bless
