Joanne Louise Irwin

September 1, 1965December 29, 2018

Joanne Louise Irwin, 53, passed away December 29, 2018. She was born September 1, 1965 in Chester, West Virginia and resided in Orange Park, Florida. Joanne had many fond memories of growing up back home in Chester with her family and friends. She loved running long distance track bare foot in high school, she hated shoes. So many of her friends remember her feisty, goofy and fun-loving attitude toward life. Joanne looked forward to her yearly trips to the Memphis in May BBQ Festival to visit her brother, Robert Ridinger. Amazing Grace played with bag-pipes was a special song to her heart, especially when played by her brother Rick Ridinger. She had a big sense of humor and was ALWAYS looking for laughter in any situation. Her grandchildren were her pride and joy and they always made her smile. Mrs. Irwin is survived by her loving husband of 35 years; Arthur L. Irwin Jr., son; Arthur L. Irwin III, daughter; Sara Workman and 2 grandchildren; Arthur L. Irwin IV and Sloane Maxwell Workman; and 3 siblings; brothers Robert Ridinger and Rick Ridinger; and sister Carol Fields. Joanne will be deeply missed by so many. Cheers mom, we love you.

Growing up in Chester, WV, Joanne and I lived two doors down from each other and shared every hope and dream for a few of our formative years. She loved her family to the core of her soul, even during the bickering teen years. Being with her family in later years made her so joyful. Joanne's spirit was playful yet loyal, and every time we messaged or talked, I came away feeling lighter and loved. Rest In Peace, dear friend...
