I am her nephew and the memory of my Aunt Joanne that I will never forget is of the time our two families took a trip to Florida. Aunt Joanne was sooo looking forward to some warm weather and swimming in the ocean. Well the morning after our first night there we woke up to a frost, but Aunt Joanie was bound and determined to go swimming so she went back in her room to change into her swimsuit and when she came outside she was wearing her thermals under her suit. We all had a good laugh. The highlight of the trip.
