Joann has been my dear friend since we worked at the Northeast Nebraska Area Agency on Aging in Norfolk. She brightened my days whenever we enjoyed time together. I shall miss our lunches when we met up at Perkins in Lincoln. Every memory I have of Joann brings a smile to my face. We had so much fun and both of us loved to dance.
Darci, Jeff and Connie and family your mother was such a wonderful, loving person. Joann will live on because of the many blessings she brought to all of us. My prayers and thoughts are with you during this sad time. Much love, Betty Jean Reinard xoxoxo
