JoAnn was the most sweetest lady I have ever had the pleasure of knowing and doing her . She was ALWAYS smiling ! Truth be told that even in her worst of days , she probably had a smile on her sweet face . I will miss seeing her and all the pictures of her . I called her the most popular “Facebook mom “. Penny , I know you remember that saying she would say ... wasn’t it “ now do I”
We always giggled at her .
Please know you are all in my thoughts and prayers. She will be missed but I know she would not want to come back if she could ... because Heaven is wonderful !
Peace be with you all
