Auntie Jo was such a big part of me. Not only my Aunt but my Godmother, she shared her love for family, always making it the most important in our lives. She shared her love of Jesus, taking us to church, praying as we gathered and sharing her faith. Her hugs were always warm, cushy and the best feeling, not only when I was little but grown too. I spent many summers with her, she taught me to knit, which I never picked up very well. Play cribbage, card games and even how to shuffle the cards. She was always so joyful, rarely did she scold me but I never wanted to give her a reason too. I was so very happy to bring my younger two children to visit and stay with her in Maine. So proud and excited for her to meet my four kids and husband when she came to California. God's timing is always perfect. It brings a smile to my face when I thought about all those who greeted you in heaven. I will miss you so much but I know we will see each other again. We love you ❤️ Forever in my heart Auntie Jo🦋

A lady well loved ... by her friends, her famiy, her church, her husband and her Lord. Joanna, I will miss talking with you ... I will miss stitching with you ... I will miss praying with you. When I woke the morning after you had passed, the sun was so very bright ... I just knew it was Alan greeting you with open arms and a big smile on his face. "Together again" is an awsome thing. I praise God for the honor of knowing you!
