  1. Our hearts are broken with this news, and we should have known she was not doing well when our holiday card returned to us, and she hadn’t answered her phone or texted back. We adored her jokes and laughing constantly at our wedding (“Hide all that lobster, you two, or Grandpa Mike might just pocket it all!”), and stories about playing cards (with pistachios!) It was so nice spending time with her and little Penny too. When Grandpa Mike passed, we took the first flight down to Florida and spent almost a week with her sorting through things, while she looked all over the house for hidden treasure she knew Grandpa Mike must have left her. Finding laundry lint and lost items with laughs instead. So deeply saddened we did not get a chance to say goodbye, but will forever hold her spirit of fun and happiness close to our hearts.

  2. Jo, for 68 years we have been best friends. Our memories together and with the whole gang will stay with us forever. Miss your humor and that winkle in your eye. May you be at peace – love and miss you. Arl

  3. I am glad Joanne has found peace in the arms of our Lord and that she is with Mike and Penny. So sad for all her suffering. She and Mike spent a lot of time with me and my family for many years. My grandchildren used to call her Joey Ann. Be at peace….

  4. I recently heard about Joanne’s passing. Through my late sister Jo Ann and her genealogy, we found out we were blood relatives to Joanne and her siblings. This was only several years ago. Joanne, my daughter Lisa, and have got to unite and we felt like we knew each other forever. I’m so happy we got to spend time and am saddened by her passing. My condolences to her family and friends. God be with you. 🙏
