Joanne Holm was born October 20, 1941 on the family farm near Emery, SD to Harvey and Louise (Fluth) Terveen. She graduated from Emery High School in 1959. She later attended Stewarts School of Hair. On November 25, 1962 she married Ralph Holm at St. Paul's Presbyterian Church in Emery. They began their early years on a farm west of Salem, SD. In 1965, they left their farm and headed west to California with their oldest son Todd. A dream Joanne always had. Shortly after their move, they added their second son Ricky, making their family complete. Joanne spent her days on the farm as a homemaker and enjoyed working in her gardens. One of Joanne's greatest joys was becoming a grandma. She and Ralph made several trips back and forth to South Dakota to spend time with them. In 2013 they purchased a home in Dell Rapids, SD. As Joanne's health began to fail, they made it their permanent home in 2017. She will be remembered for her love of the Lord and her eagerness to share Him with others.

Joanne is survived by her husband Ralph of 55 years, son Todd and his wife Shannon Holm and their children Skylar, Taryn, and Ryker, sister Lavonne Hall, brother Jim (Sandra) Terveen, sisters-in-law Betty Stahl and Connie (Daniel) Zelmer, numerous nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her son Ricky Holm, her parents, her brothers Dennis and Robert Terveen, brother-in-law Sam Stahl, and nephew Craig Stahl.

In lieu of flowers, memorials are preferred.
