JoAnn was my best friend when she married my brother on August 29. They had a darling daughter, Debbie, who was born on my 22 Birthday. Our world was shattered when Debbie lost her battle with ALL at 5 months old. A year later she welcomed Bobby and was thrilled to have this healthy baby. A few years later, Lee was a welcome addition. It was sad when Sandy and Jo divorced but she later found love and married Mark. She was a loving woman, a talented legal secretary and a great cook! May her soul find peace. Love you, Jo😔
