Jo Ann Mary Dell

September 13, 1943April 25, 2021

On Sunday, April 25, 2021, Joann Mary Dell of San Diego departed from this earthly life with her loved ones by her side at Kaiser Permanente Clairemont.

Joann was born on September 13, 1943 at Cedars of Lebanon Hospital in West Hollywood California, and was a resident of San Diego from 1963 until her passing. A loving mother and wife, she worked at Jack Murphy/Qualcomm stadium for over 25 years, and relished in hobbies and interests upon her retirement.

Joann’s passions were innumerable, but she was most known for being an active and loving mother and grandmother, and enjoyed spending as much time with her family and friends as possible. She will be remembered for her many stories of a long and fruitful life, and she will be sincerely missed.

Joann was preceded in death by her husband Ray E. Dell, her mother Dorothy Morrison, and her father George Devos. She is survived by her stepmother Beverly Devos, son David Maxmillian Dell, his wife Theresa Dell, former daughter-in-law Kandi Archibald, her grandchildren Sharalyn Dell, Jessica and husband Gregory Wariner, and Chelsea Dell, great-grandchildren Olivia Wariner and Zoe Wariner, lifelong friend Gloria Welch, and a host of other long-time friends.

Her wish was to be cremated, and the family has chosen to have a private memorial service in remembrance of her.

Thank you

Joann was my sister’s mother-in-law, but I felt like she was my mother-in-law too. I sometimes told people that’s who she was to me because it was the easiest and best way to describe our relationship. Joannn helped me many times throughout the years and even when I was at my very lowest she NEVER judged me. Joann never judged anyone. She was one of a kind and such an important part of our family. We are a family of mostly very strong women and Joann can be given much of the credit for that. So thank you, Joann, for everything, and until we meet again. XOXO
