I just remember Joanie from high school and how she was always an upbeat person and fun to be around.
The family is in my prayers.

A gentle soul, a smile freely given, a mother's love, serving faithfully in the eternal presence of God. May she rest in peace, and may the memory of her time among us comfort those who mourn. Throught Jesus Christ our Saviour and Lord. Amen.
