    Joann was one of kind lady. She had a crazy humor and wonderful smile. I loved that woman. She always made me feel so special. Her love for her husband and family was number one. Rest in peace.

    Sadly for many, the matriarch of this very close family has exchanged her earthly home for her heavenly one! But for this we should celebrate in that she is with the One who gave her the blessed life she lived. She will be greatly missed. I’m glad to have had the opportunity to get to know her
