    Joann was such a wonderful caring woman. I will miss seeing her. I’m so glad I got to see her at the hospital not long ago when Cindy had her up there. We got to talk and catch up. I loved working with her at the nursing home she taught me so much. I’m sorry for your loss. I want be able to make the funeral but know I’m thinking about you all.

    JoAnn was a special lady with a heart of love. Precious memories of childhood at Brogan Ave Baptist Church. I always thought of her during this time of year since she is the one who encouraged me at Vacation Bible School. Prayers for her family as they strive through this time.
