  1. My memory of Joanne was her smiling eyes & friendly way she always greeted everyone. Also how she seemed timeless. A while back I use to call the members of the Fairgrove Presbyterian Church to ask for food donations for their youth group & on this call to her she told me she was preparing some food for her daughters 50th (I believe it was) Wedding Anniversary party but it would not be a problem & in fact that she would deliver it. I never thought how old she was at the time but it later struck me that if her own daughter was celebrating 50yrs of marriage she herself had to be in her 80’s & then I later found out she made most of the food for the party not just a salad or something!! She had a lot of energy & lived for her family I know. My sincere condolences to her whole family on losing such a big part of it. God’s peace & comfort to you all.

  2. My heart goes out to the family.
    she was a wonder and caring person who will be sadly missed. Prayers and thoughts of well wishes in your time of need.
