We are so sorry for your loss, the world will be greatly diminished without
JoAnn there .
She always had a smile for all to see.

Jo Ann's legacy will forever live on in all the beautiful and touching memories everyone has of her. She was truly a one-of-kind creation by God, as she always had a heart of gold, an outstanding and warm personality as well as her welcoming smile and twinkle in her eyes. At family gatherings, she was always one with whom you knew more happy memories would be created. James, Jamie, and all her family-- know that you are being remembered in prayers and thoughts. May each of you cherish her memory and all the special times you had together. May those memories, and our prayers, sustain each of you in the days ahead. God has one of His special angels with Him now, and she is only a thought and prayer away until she helps welcome us into His kingdom of Heaven one day. With my deepest sympathy and prayers, Shirley Moczygemba

When I was introduced to the Lincke family Joann (JoJo as many of us called her) she welcomed me with open arms. I am married to her brother Leslie Doreck (yes, we have the same name). Over the years as I’d gotten to know her she became more than a sister-in-law to me, she was my sister and she felt the same about me. There was never a dull moment when JoJo was around, she has such a contagious laugh. She has touched everyone’s life in some kind of way she came across with her amazing kindness. She was such a loving wife, mother, sister, and Aunt. She will be missed by so many. We love you JoJo ❤️

Joann really helped to make me feel welcome in her family after moving away from all my old friends and family in MN down to TX. She loved to poke fun at my Midwest accent and even came to my work one time just to drop off an armadillo purse and snap a pic of my reaction to it (I always wanted to see one after moving down). Such a sweet, funny and all around lovely person. The world was a little brighter with her in it. Hugs and prayers to the family during this time.

There isn’t a memory of JoAnn that doesn’t make me smile or even laugh. JoAnn had a zest for life that was absolutely contagious. She loved immensely and was even more funny! She would leave me in stitches every time I was around her. JoAnn valued family and love over anything materialistic. She is the definition of how we all should live life. Jamie & James, please know so many are praying for you guys. The world is a better place because of JoAnn and I’m so blessed to have known her. ❤️

I will forever hear your voice, see your smile, laugh at the memories shared....my heart hurts but I know that you are urrounded by everyone gone before you....."Cuz" I will miss you but there are so many memories that keep you alive in my heart...the joy and love you had..the times you gave me strength as we lost each of our family members-not shedding tears of sorrow but remembering the good times and laughing in the midst of our grief...when you bathed Jamie in the sink at Bert's....the tailgating.....in conclusion I want to celebrate your life & strive to be the awesome person, cousin, mother, sister, daughter, friend that you were...are in spirit...

JoAnn is the reason I applied for a job at the post office in Victoria. I used to see her and her daughter at the public library getting children's books . I got the job and worked in the same office with her. Last time I saw her, she and James stopped to say "Hi" when they saw me on my mail route. She was a very special person and I thought the world of her!

People just don’t get any better than JoAnn. Ever since I can remember, that smile she had would simply fill the space she was in. When you were one on one, she would listen so intently. And true to her Gisler roots, she was always plotting and planning something. She’s gone too soon. I can’t believe I won’t see her at the reunion next year. All my love and prayers go out to James, Jamie, Heidi, Leslie, and her extended family (thinking about you, Rhonda) during this time.

I met you oh so many years ago in high school in Cuero, TX. The very first thing that struck me was how your smile lit up everything around you and I knew I wanted to be your friend, Your smile always made things better. Saturday night dances at various dance halls were a blast with you. As time passes and people grow apart I was blessed to run into you on a fairly regular basis and without fail I was always lifted by your smile. I hope you know that I thought you were a very special person and so admired the love you and James had for each other. The world just got a little dimmer without you in it.
