So sorry to hear of Joannes passing. She and I were good friends in the late 70s and 80s. I remember long conversations at St Marys and her beautiful home on the hill where she lived with her husband, dad and Shadow. How loving she was. She also began a CCD program for handicapped. Brilliant woman. RIP Joanne, I'll see you later.

I remember very fondly my years together with Joanne at former St. Marys when she was in charge of the religious ed program. It was a loss to the parish when she left. May she rest in the peace of Christ for all her years of faithful service to God's people in Springfield. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. Fr. Ken Baker
