Joann Mary (Kapaun) Hines died peacefully (not covid related) on June 28, 2020 in North Kansas City at the age of 86.

Joann was born on March 5, 1934 in Montrose, South Dakota to John “Jack” and Florence Kapaun. She graduated from Cathedral High School in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Joann married James “Jim” Hines in 1952. Joann was a homemaker until the age of 40 when she completed a lifelong dream of becoming a nurse graduating from Penn Valley School of Nursing in 1974. Upon graduation, Joann worked at North Kansas City Hospital until 1987 when she and Jim began enjoying retirement. The couple welcomed three children into their home and built a foundation of love, family, and friendship. Her family remembers her as a loving, hospitable, witty woman with a love for reading and music. She was known as an exceptionally good friend by many and she cherished her family and heritage. After retirement, Jim and Joann spent years traveling visiting 48 states and many European countries.

Joann was a member of the Beta Sigma Phi sorority. She served on the Gladstone Park Board from 1975-1977. She was an active member of the North Kansas City Hospital Auxiliary where she served as Board President several years and was granted many awards for her service. Jim and Joann were active and dedicated members of St. Charles Catholic Church. Joann will be remembered for her compassion, being a nurse on call to her family and friends and having a welcoming, friendly, outgoing and inclusive nature. She taught her family that ‘to have a friend you have to be a friend.’

She is preceded in death by her husband James, parents John and Florence Kapaun (maiden, O’Brien), brothers Frank, Ralph and Jim, and son John.

Joann is survived by son Jeff and daughter Jana Brewer (Mike); grandchildren: Jennifer Agee (Darrell), Josephine and John Hines, and Lacey Brewer; great-grandchildren: Brent Agee (Robin) and Alyssa Picht (Kyle); great-great grandchildren: Bennett, Issabella and Ellianna Agee; brother Flo Kapaun and many nieces and nephews.
