Joanne Mazie (Warner) Luker was born October 20, 1937 in Sayre, Pennsylvania, the youngest of 5 children, to Lester Charles & Florence Belle Warner. Joanne spent her days playing with her beloved cousins, Anne & Patricia, walking the railroad tracks, riding bikes and sitting under the apple trees. After moving down to Odessa, TX to live with her big sister, Jean, Joanne met the love of her life, JR Luker, who she married June 23, 1956 in Lovington, NM and blessed him with 4 children, 3 sons and 1 daughter. Married for 58 years, Joanne was a devoted mother and wife, while balancing working full time.

I'll miss you Aunt Joanne. I'm glad last time we talked we shared some laughs, old memories, and our continuing love for each other. Wish it had been more recently and in person. What a huge loving family you created. Hopefully your humor and bright spirit will continue down the line and help us all get by without you.

So many wonderful memories. Aunt Joanne left a legacy of love and sacrifice. She was a primary influence in my life from my toddler years into my adulthood. And the cooking weekends that took place so often here in West Texas in the 60s and 70s were legendary. To this day I can hear her giggle as she scooped up carrots or potatoes that hit the floor as she chopped them for stew and exclaim “off the floor stew”. A term still used in my family. She was delightful. She loved and was loved well. Heaven is full of our precious angels. Prayers for strength and sweet memories to sustain her family.
These two Yankee girls made an incredible Texas lady legacy!
