We are all so sad to lose such a beautiful soul. Joann was married to my brother, Bob for 62 years and she was such an inspiration to all of us. She loved her family wholeheartedly and unconditionally. She was the kind of person who would do anything for anyone and never ask for anything in return. She also devoted her life to our Lord and Savior. Heaven has gained one special angel. We all loved her and she will be missed

Sister Joann was precious to our family. Not many people today show such a genuine love to others the way that Sister Joann did. I hope I can live up to her example. She will be missed dearly.
