Diane, I’m so very sorry for your loss. Loosing our parents is so hard on our hearts. May God’s love be of comfort during this sad time. ??
Bill and family we were so sorry to hear about JoAnn’s passing. She was such a talented lady and you were both great friends and neighbors. I enjoyed our many painting classes we went to be it landscape or China painting. We will always remember our trip to the theatre in the round as well as our trip to Tennessee. Bill you and your family are in our thoughts and prayers during this time of sorrow. May JoAnn Rest In Peace.
JoAnn was such a sweet and lovely lady. Her smile lit up the room and she was so kind and gracious to everyone! As God gently lifts her beautiful soul into His peaceful forevermore, may her family find comfort in her eternal love for them. Our prayers and sincerest sympathy to her beloved family.
Bill, Diane and Scott,
I was so sad to hear about JoAnn. We were planning to have lunch soon.
We are out if town and unable to attend the service. Know you are in our thoughts and prayers.
Bill, Diane & Scott
I was so sorry to hear about the loss of JoAnn. I worked with her many years ago at Union Electric/Ameren and enjoyed my friendship with her. She was a very dedicated employee and well respected. She also enjoyed her family and was so proud of Diane and Scott and their children. I haven’t seen her in recent years but think kindly of her often. She will certainly be missed.
I can’t believe that JoAnn is gone! Our moving to North Carolina has kept us from getting together every month for breakfast at Bob Evans. She and Mary Meyer and I would go there for breakfast and end up staying till after lunch. I love her and Mary like my sisters. Worked at Union Electric for about 8 years and went on every break and lunch with her those 8 years.
She was a TRUE friend, wonderful mother to Diane and Scott, Loving Grandmother and Great Grandmother.
We will see you in Heaven!
