    I knew Joanne for many years and was so saddened to hear of her passing from this world. She was one of the most positive people I knew and always had a kind word for everyone. My deepest sympathy to Dottie and all her family. She will be missed. Please let me know when you will have a celebration of her life. Rest In Peace, Joanne.

  2. Joanne had health issues over the years,
    but she never gave up. She was small but
    she was fierce. She was strong and she
    was a fighter. I always admired her strength
    and positive attitude. She left her mark and
    will be missed. She is resting in God’s arms
    now and is at peace. With deep sympathy to
    Dottie and family

    I was saddened to hear the passing of my dear cousin Joanne. She brought much joy to her family, friends and those she met along her life’s journey. Her smile and laughter I will always remember as I grew up on Buttaro Road. Please include me in any life’s celebration for Joanne that is planned in the future. May those she left behind be comforted by how much she was loved. I wish her eternal peace.
