I worked with Joann at the high school, She always had a smile and a never a bad word about anyone. She was a true friend. She will be missed.

Joann has been the best neighbor anyone could ask for. Her precious personality and smile will be remembered for years to come.
We have enjoyed her company from her needing help with little things around the house to our trips to the grocery store, we have loved her. In recent years we have watched to make sure her paper was picked up and her blinds opened to see she was ok each day.
We have loved having her as our neighbor and will certainly miss the sunshine she brought with her smile.
Rest well Joann and fly high. We love you.
