Joanne was a tower of strength and resolve. It has been my pleasure to have known her and to love her and share quiet joy in her company

We give thanks for the loving life of Joanne. I still remember her hands putting braids in my hair as I stood in front of her in C.Y.M., her excitement at starting to teach, and how over the moon she was at getting married -then again when she was finally pregnant and had both a son and a daughter . Joanne lived a full life participating in all that came along. Today I light a candle at home to remain ever present to her passing but most of all to give thanks for her life and to have known her for so many years. Our condolences to all her family and an extra bear hug for Lesia
With love Djana or Janet Luchkiw Derumaux
