Joan L. ‘Ombie’ Wolford – Hampshire Review

She worked for SOME, Inc in Capon Bridge as a residential assistant. She was a member of the Capon Bible Fellowship, Capon Bridge Vol. Rescue Squad, volunteered at the Capon Bridge Elementary, and helped as a nurse for the Girls Scouts at the Camp White Rock, all in Capon Bridge. Joan was always willing to help others; she didn’t know a stranger. She often put her red nose and wig on and dressed up like a clown. Joan had a love of bringing laughter others, but her true love was her family. She married Oscar L. Wolford on July 30, 1994, in Capon Bridge.
