She touched everyone who ever had the pleasure of her company. I am so saddened to know the world has lost her but I am joyous that she is now truly at rest and at peace with God. JoAnne was wonderful to me and my children. I will always remember her ready smile, wicked sense of humor, her giving spirit and the warmth of being in her presence. My heart goes out to this family and my prayers will be for peace during this difficult loss.

I met JoAnne about 30 years ago when she worked at a bank in Greenwood. She is a beautiful and kind woman. She was very kind and friendly. I am sorry that her family has lost her but Jesus has another angel in His band of angels!
