I was so very sad to learn of Joann's passing. I have so many memories of her at St. Teresa, along with Bill. It sounds like she had a good long run at life. My prayers for her and the family. Judge Carey

I met Joann at North High School where the Optimist Little Baseball League played. My mother worked with her at one time and thought she was a very friendly and caring person. I have fond memories of Joann, her husband Bill and all of their children. Joann was always lively spirited and entertaining. Her personality was unique and she made you feel important and she was sincere and said some pretty funny things which made me laugh. i know she was a good wife and dedicated and supportive mother. Rest In Peace, Joann and know that you lived a very good Christian life and that you were respected and admired by me and all who knew you!
